Okay Özkan

Okay Özkan


1987, Ankara


Özkan’s works range from using everyday life objects to working on archives and using traditional art techniques. His art practice is based on the living conditions in which he lives. His work focuses critically on political, economic, social and cultural issues and it tries to communicate with the audience. His works are loaded with irony and poetry which he discusses from his own local perspective, while sabotaging the powers that be on the one hand and touching upon his themes' universal equivalents.


Recent exhibitions of Özkan's art work include the Young Fresh Different 9 / Zilberman Gallery (2018); Rotary Art Prize / Elgiz Museum (2018); Still Life with a Curtain / Galerist (2018); ‘Temporality – Difference’ and Beyond, Marmara University (2017); Session I, Mixer Gallery (2016); Border and Orbits, Tütün Deposu (2016); Mümkün, Karga Art Gallery (2015); Skinny Deeping in the Void, Nordwall, The Hague (2014) and Word and Things, Yüksel Sabancı Art Gallery (2013).
He was also awarded the Istanbul Rotary Art Prize (2018), the 2nd Contemporary Art Project Competition for Youth, Ankara (2016), and the Siemens Art Prize, Istanbul (2015). 


Özkan received a bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts from Marmara University and a master’s degree in Art and Design from Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul.

 

Özkan currently lives and works in Istanbul.
