Serkan Altinoz (b. 1985) is a Brooklyn based dynamic and versatile artist who defies
categorization and limitations. Serkan’s art explores the boundaries between the organic and inorganic, and the traditional and contemporary. He seamlessly integrates the ancient technique of Turkish paper marbling with a modern and experimental approach, resulting in a captivating fusion of old and new, and East and West.
Serkan’s art is characterized by his fluid use of acrylic ,enamel paints, chemical solvents, fire, and water to create abstract compositions that are inspired by nature and the human experience. Serkan took much of his inspiration and early training from his father, Sedat Altinoz, a 5th generation ebru master at Mustafa Duzgunman Ecole in Turkey.
Constantly seeking new and innovative techniques, Serkan relocated to New York in 2013 to
explore and showcase his art. He pushes the boundaries of traditional marbling by manipulating both organic and inorganic pigments on the surface of water to transfer images onto a variety of materials such as paper, canvas, glass, and wood panels and three dimensional objects. Recently, he has also expanded his artistic expression by producing NFT videos using cutting-edge video editing software and AI technology.
Serkan’s works have been showcased at solo exhibitions across New York, including at Salomon Arts Gallery and Queens Botanical Garden, and in group exhibitions in Miami Beach, Chelsea, and Vermont.
