“Ecce”, mixed technic on wall, 381×220 cm, 2012

Exhibited in Renovation, Street Art Festival İstanbul, 2012

The festival has the theme ‘Renovation’, a word whose meaning has shifted in today’s social life to mean demolishing and starting afresh. Adding value to the places where we live and thinking about the quality of life should be something we all do, but the solutions generated by the economic system don’t take this approach. The fact that an important area in the fabric of Istanbul is to change its face questions what can happen with social change.

Together with artists from the UK, France, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Chile and Iran, Switzeland as well as more than 30 Turkish-born street artists, graffiti artists, painters, visual artists and illustrators are guests of the festival, Tarlabaşı will be artistically renovated. This will include one facade, 6 entrances and a main entrance of an apartment building, bringing colour and soul.
