by Evre Başak
Evre Başak was born and raised in Istanbul, a grand old, culturally diverse metropolis in which exists a rare example of how antiquity and modernity can blend together in perfect harmony. She has been drawing and painting ever since she worked out how to hold a pencil. Since graduating from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University 7 years ago, she has been a professional senior fashion and print designer. Meanwhile she has continued to refine her drawing and painting skills while maintaining a consistent output of original work. Examples of her work have been exhibited at The Marmara Pera Gallery, Milk Gallery, Mtaär Gallery and at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University. In 2008, she won the international design award, “The Future of National Textile Design Award”.
Evre’s artistic passion is nourished by the mysterious power of Mother Nature, the animal kingdom, the universe; and the dark, fantastic romanticism and captivating characters found throughout history and in fairytales. She is trying to capture the positivity, beauty and romance of “the darkness” in order to show that without it, we cannot see the stars.
