SEÇKİN PİRİM

b. 1977 Ankara, Turkey

Lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey

Seçkin Pirim is an artist living and working in Istanbul, Turkey.  His work has been exhibited internationally. He is the recipient of many awards and is included in several prominent, private collections around the world.

Pirim's conceptual sculptures explore form, color, and pattern.  Working in a variety of media, his artworks examine the relationship between object and space, the dichotomy between nature and culture, and the line between art and design. His sculptures are neo minimalist forms of expression as well as contemporary strategies of art and design.  They create an aesthetic that neglects social connotation and is able to form a post-futurist, post-constructivist and post-minimal vision of our world.

Seçkin Pirim  art is an honest, sincere process where autobiographical instinctiveness unites with spatial examination… Pirim cares about revealing the visual illusions hidden in [the] unwritten laws of nature, thus making the visual experience [interactive].”
