Born in 1993 in Düzce, Samet Öztürk graduated from Bolu Fine Arts High School and Abant İzzet Baysal University Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Painting. The artist participated to several exhibitions both in Turkey and abroad, and his works are about the individual “with no interest in life, unfitting everywhere, judged for his gender, building his own prison while trying to meet the societal norms”. His figures with faces hiding behind the darkness of despair and looking at the society from a distance are deeply sad for they are unable to express themselves. Öztürk departs from the question “shall we wear masks so that our bodies are not frightening anymore”, and his characters with both real life and fictional origins carry the silent screams of those individuals marginalized by the majority.
