MRE

He was born in Istanbul in 1988. In 2015, he graduated from the Sculpture Department of Marmara University, Faculty of Fine Arts. During his undergraduate years and afterwards, he produced works in disciplines such as sculpture, ceramics, digital art, and decor. He also found a place for himself in the streets with unnamed sticker and paste-up experiments both in Turkey and abroad. In late 2018, 'yan dişli' characters entered his life, and under the name MRE, he began to pour himself onto different surfaces using different techniques. MRE, who changes the color and characters of stories and tells them again, describes himself as an artist who wanders close to Lowbrow, Cubism, and Pop-Art, trying to be active in the streets as well.
