Hikmet Onat was his first instructor there. in the meantime, he took private lessons from Mr. Muazzez and attended Duran's atelier. Through his own efforts, he stayed in Paris in 1928 and worked with A. Lhote, When he returned to Turkey, Uren was appointed as an arts and crafts teacher at the Erzurum Teacher Training School. His early articles began to be published in newspapers. He joined the "D" group (9th volume in 1943). in his second visit to Paris, he attended the ateliers of Lhote and O. Friesz.


He has won various awards, including Second Prize at the 24th State Painting and Sculpture Exhibition in 1964 and the Honor Award of the Ankara Municipality in 1980.


Esref Uren, in his artistle life, chose his own masters and was true to his inner beliefs. He reflected the streets, parks and gardens of Ankara with poetic description without the interference of dullness. He is a member of the group called the 'intimists' in Turkey.
