Mine Birgen

In my works, I draw inspiration from chaotic daily life, especially in big cities. I observe people doing daily activities on the streets, in the subway, and around me and portray them as the protagonist of a story. I rediscover the city every time, look at the environment from a different perspective, reset my old memories, and produce other stories. Action, instinct, and dynamism come to the fore in my paintings. Used and recycled materials add texture, depth, and experience to my artwork, while at the same time gaining a new meaning. I use large canvases to reflect my encounters’ visual impact and power.
