Kerem Topuz

Kerem Topuz is a multidisciplinary artist and a film director. He was born in Tekirdağ in 1978 and studied Cinema and Television at Akademi İstanbul between 1996-98. Topuz creates his artworks using manufactured objects and popular imagery, sometimes maximizing them with digital techniques or combining them with found objects or with different kind of unrelated materials.

Topuz  takes those materials and imagery out of their visual context, and then isolates them or mixes them with other materials. Thus, he emphasizes the ‘kitschy’ features of our popular culture’s imagery, the iconic artworks of our Art History or ordinary consumer products by redefining them. The artist, who prefers to use ordinary and familiar images in his works, transforms the banality of everyday life into quality (unqualified) reproduced goods by using contrasting and vibrant colors.
