Cins

1984 born in Ankara. Living and working in İstanbul. Using the nickname ‘Cins’ (literally translated as ‘breed’) throughout his career, he has been very much influenced by cartoon characters from an early age, integrated in to graffiti culture very early on, Cins’ style differs from that of pop-art undertones, right over to the other end of the spectrum offering its viewer a nod to surrealism. His works take on many forms which are mostly rooted in his background and his graphic design studies, taking on many forms and techniques. These techniques and varying mediums are evident across his work, including in his Street/Wall art. His work is constantly evolving, and the work he creates has very ‘organic tendencies’, as he likes to refer to it.

The form his works takes varies, and an individual work may be made up lots of other separate works, or other times individual pieces. His work consists of imaginary stories that ultimately aim to arouse varying sensations within us. However, these stories are not based on sentiment; they are generally surreal, abstract stories awaking unpredictable reactions and feeling in its viewer.
