Mihriban Mirap

Mihriban Mirap is born in 1981 in Istanbul. She graduated from Yeditepe University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Plastic Arts Department in 2005, and completed her MA degree in 2020 at the same university. She is trained in the renowned Turkish artists’ studios as; Professor Özdemir Altan, Prof. Zahit Büyükkişleyen and Prof. Turan Aksoy and Prof. Gülveli Kaya. Mirap participated in many group exhibitions in Turkey and abroad. She continues her painting activities in her studio in Istanbul and also works as an art instructor at Bilgi University Vocational School and in various institutions.

In her paintings, Mihriban Mirap focuses on consumer culture and depicts the city life and people who live in cities within the chaos by considering the perception of ‘fast and modern life’. The metropolitan life, which constitutes the main axis of her artworks, is constructed by the rapid changes and by the continuous tensions that city life brings. In her recent artworks, she depicts portraits of old women and objects that they had to use in time to make their lives easier. By putting her paintings in old and used frames, she is raising an awareness that becoming an elder is beautiful without any external intervention and questions the understanding of “eternal beauty” that mass culture offers to people today.
