Nursun Hafızoğlu

Nursun Hafızoğlu is completed her undergraduate degree at Çukurova University from the Painting Department in 2011. She continues her graduate degree at the Painting Department at Akdeniz University, Institute of Fine Arts which she started in 2017.

The artist depicts modern cities and images from urban life in her paintings produced with mixed media. While the images of the cities consist of objects, signs, and symbols that are experienced in daily life practices, the images of animals and abstraction of plants located in the paintings symbolize the destruction of the wildlife and habitats. Her art practice is based on the greed of the city and the alienation of urban mankind from nature. In her paintings, she points out that ‘mankind has to change’ and depicts her subjects by considering the utopia and dystopia concepts.
