The artist

An architect by trade, Yener Torun gleans his inspiration as a photographer from the lines, colourful designs and symmetrical layouts of urban landscapes. Born in Turhal in 1982, he studied at Istanbul Technical University and worked as an architect for over a decade. During the same period, he criss-crossed the streets of the fascinating Turkish cultural capital, in search of subjects to photograph. His interest in the medium encouraged him in 2013 to use Instagram, an online platform for sharing photographs that is venerated by promising young talents. So Yener Torun published his first colourful, minimalist and original shots there, which soon made him one of the most influential artists of his generation. Today, he mainly devotes himself to his practice, learning photography techniques and now exploring Turkey as a whole: Ankara, Bursa, Izmir and Kocaeli, are among the cities that will very soon by the subject of a publication.  ...

About the artwork

An inspiring location owing to its geographical situation at the crossroads of civilisations, Istanbul is famous for its Oriental and Western influences, for its contrasts between tradition and modernity and its grandiose architecture inherited from the Ottoman and Byzantine empires. Its old streets, panoramic views over the Bosphorus, its famous Blue Mosque and Saint Sophia Cathedral are not however the subjects that interest Yener Torun, who prefers to sublimate less frequented parts of his hometown, by wandering through industrial and residential areas. The results are entrancingly beautiful, dominated by repetitive geometric themes, flamboyant and saturated colours, and work on shadows that magnifies the fa?ades of the Turkish capital. Yener Torun hopes to change the perception that people have of his country by presenting a modern, bright, dynamic and colourful Istanbul for all to see. His disparate influences oscillate between the abstract artworks of the Minimalist Piet Mondrian, those of American painter Frank Stella, the inventor of geometrically cut canvases taking the shape of Middle Eastern cities, or the methodical arrangements of the videogame Tetris.
