ЯR -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was born in Istanbul, 1975. After getting education Graphic Design and Visual Communications, In year 1999 I’ve started working in my home office as a freelance graphic designer. I first met with Video after installing assembly line schedule to my computer in year 2000, at first it was all about short video loops that I created, and then I added some music and started my VJing carrier. In those days no one else was VJing in Turkey so I had the chance to stand out in most of the Festivals, Clubs and special nights. Instead of using software, I used analog video mixers in my live visual performances. This way I had my own style in a short while. By doing that, I had the chance to work with; The Chemical Brothers, Sasha, Fluke, Carl Cox, Steve Lawler, Bony M, Nick Warren and many more...


ЯR -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------In year 2003, I created a video for an electronic music band called Calaquendi. The feedback about this video was more than I’ve ever expected, so I started shooting music videos.


ЯR -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------After working with several artists around the world, a mash-up video of Sezen Aksu & Prodigy that I created in 2007 for MTV Turkey, brought me “The Trend Video of the Year” Award.


ЯR -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------In year 2008, my first important installation effectuated in Taksim Metro Station known as the most crowded metro station in Istanbul, by the name “ Deference to the Difference”.


ЯR -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I’m making live visuals for an ethnic electronic music band named “Istanbul Calling” as a permanent member. I like nature, animals, to joy ride and reggae music…
