Yalim Yildirim

Artist Statement

I was born in 1971, in Ankara. In 1994, I was graduated from Hacettepe University Faculty of Economics & Administrative Science, Department of Economy. In 2001, I started my painting works. First I took oil painting lessons from Haluk Evitan. Then, with the training I took from Mustafa Ayaz, I’ve started looking for new technique approaches. I use , figures mainly in my paintings, chooses environment and human as themes. I still continue working in my studio in Ankara.


We, who try to keep up among all the rush and chaos of society...

With endless questions in our minds, exhausted and mindful faces, experienced sufferings and people who want to cry out their suffering even the words on tip of our tongues which we cannot express.Creation process of my paintings is based on expressions reflected by people in such processes and situations in extraordinary pace of life. Standing for a moment and looking at them, experiencing these moments and become a part of them will explain all hidden moments of paintings.

Anyway, isn't it important for all of us to capture that moment in life?
