My name is Gokcen Yuksek and I was born in Turkey, raised in Chester and currently live in London.
After working as a 3D sculptor over the last 10 years I started oil painting in 2019. It is a nice contrast to digital design, and I found that they both compliment each other. My painting has improved my 3D Style and the 3D reflects back to painting in understanding light and form better.
I still carry on working as a digital sculptor in various industries such as games, production, fashion and paint in my free time.
I started painting to explore different ways to express ideas and thoughts. I was very much inspired by the pop surreal style and have been exploring with this over the last two years.
I find painting is really healing and relaxing. It has helped me release and grow and has become an essential part of my life. One of the best parts of it was to be introduced to a world of so many other artists who share the same passion.
I hope to improve, learn and explore a lot more with this in the future and enjoy it as much as I do today. ~ Gokcen Yuksek
