We are happy to announce a · d r i f t, an exhibition by Beste Miray Doğan, as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Beste Miray Doğan is a graphic designer based in Istanbul.
She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design in Beykent University, Istanbul. Studied Design and Culture Management in Bilgi University, Istanbul, she is currently doing her master course on Graphic Design in Anadolu University, Eskişehir. After working for multi-disciplinary design companies for years now she is doing books & book covers design.
She tries the walk in between design and art by her ‘made up projects’. Trying to point the effortless ‘art pieces’ or ‘design objects’ among daily life, she uses different medias like illustration, photography and typography…
Beste has a fascination for old tales and fables and would like to explore and observe its effects in the daily life and apply it to her mixed-media work.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
I believe we float in time and space. Our beings are only defined by the response we create to this drifting. Just like how I, myself ended up in here itoshima by chance, by fate, by kısmet…
On my work, I will let the sumi ink and its creations be the mirror of my state in this place.
