ABOUT ESRA SAKIR

My roots are from Turkey and Italy. Born in Isparta and raised in Izmir and Istanbul. I got my first lessons on art from artists like Hale Sontas, Tayfun Erdogmus, Mahmut Cuda, Gurdal Duyar and Mehmet Guleryuz. When I was 18, I moved to Italy to study at the Brera Academy of Milan, from which I received my Bachelor's degree in 1996. In that period, I painted in a style related to magic realism.

 

In 2006 I returned to Istanbul to become a teacher on arts on Yeditepe University, where I worked with art students on re-reading art history.

 

In the summer of  2008 I left Turkey again, this time to attend a Masters program in Fine Arts at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht. I became very interested in the possibilities of re-telling the stories of historical artworks, like Diego Velasquez's "Las Meninas", using the abilities of new digital techniques and silkscreen printing to explore my re-readings of art history.
