He was born in Artvin,Turkey in 1957 and graduated from Karadeniz Technical University Department of Civil Engineering.He made an extensive research on the modern and contemporary paintings.

In his works , the intensive use of the free dimensioned canvas rather than ordinary rectangular canvas have caused him to be called as, ''The painter who doesn't fit into a canvas (frame)''.

His 11. th personal exhibition took place in New York Montserrat Art Gallery in 2004 .When drawing a Picture not using the lines and colours with the approach which is as if taking the photographs of the objects,he continues painting works with his own colour and line expression.

Artist Statement;

FREE PROPORTIONS IN THE PAINTING ART:

From which frame do we see our environment ? Square ? Rectangle ? or Circle ? Certainly non of them is the correct answer. If we look at our environment,it will be easily understood that our opinion can not be restricted to any geometric frame.However, when we get started to draw picture dimensions used becomes rectangle or square. Even if the subject which is desired to be shown on the picture stays out of the frame, it is again restricted to a square.

Therefore it is necessary to design the canvas shape of the pictures before. These kinds of the canvas will be in free dimensions. In this way, the subject of the pictures and the messages will be completely expressed.

The subject with its free dimensions were supported by the physical dimensions of the canvas. Further more it is stayed out of the geometric formation.
