Ayşe Perran YEŞEREN
«« Back


A. Perran Yeşeren was introduced to the world of lines, pencils, and shadows when she was only four years old. She continued using her talent, which was discovered when she was a little child, by drawing portraits using pencils, painting watercolor pictures depicting the faces of people around her, and drawing the trees in the streets she wandered around, houses and nature around her.

After graduating from the Painting Department of Gaziantep Girls' Institute, she focused on oil painting and woodburning. She took a great interest in woodburning and was fascinated by this branch of fine arts. She shaped pieces of poplar wood and chipboard and created statuettes and pictures made of burned wood.

She also drew the portraits of some statesmen and her paintings were displayed at different art galleries. She has many works forming a part of private collections in Turkey and abroad and they are purchased by collectors.

She participated in exhibitions in various cities and districts in Turkey. She was awarded prizes, certificates of honor, and other certificates in those exhibitions.

The artist worked for a private bank for ten years and her experience in the banking industry helped her enter the physical world that we are living in. Her passion for painting never diminished and Yeşeren took part in various collective and personal exhibitions organized by the Girls' Vocational High School between 1973 and 1974.

She now produces oil paintings and pictures on burned wood at her home based on orders received from her customers. The painter also paints pictures on walls by using oil paint and her works decorate the walls of many homes, offices, and restaurants. The painter worked for the textile industry in Istanbul and Ankara in the next part of her career and designed and shaped fabric. She worked as a stylist and prepared designs by using her pencil again. She took part in personal and collective exhibitions from 1990 through 1993.

Aside from painting, A. Perran Yeşeren worked as an executive assistant, secretary, foreign relations manager in major companies, fashion designer, stylist in the textile industry, and accountant and manager in some construction companies.

Her two oil portraits of Atatürk were published in an anthology published by the Saküder - Cultural Association of Art and Artists' Community. The photographs of her two pictures on burned wood was published in a catalogue published by the Turkish Ministry of Culture on the occasion of the First International Turkey Grameen Micro-credit Art Bienal entitled "Fight Against Poverty in the World," which was organized by the Tisva, Turkish Association for the Prevention of Wastage.

A. Perran Yeşeren also takes part in social activities and events. She conducts interviews and writes articles about painting for Türk Dünyası Yüce Erek (a monthly opinion, culture, and research magazine) and Türkiye'de Resim Sanatı'nı Medyatek (business, women, home) magazine.
