About

Serpil was born in Çanakkale in Turkey.She graduated from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University,in Istanbul,in 2008.
She has been living in London since April 2016.

Serpil’s latest works are structured around internal conflicts, defense mechanisms, the need for attention, and the daily struggles that border on the neurotic as the individual goes about their daily life; trying to shape it to suit the standards of the society in which they operate.

Through her main character, Serpil underlines and draws attention to these little tensions despite life appearing to be on track for her subject.
She places her characters in the centre of the scene, putting them in simulated environments with symbolic objects. This helps to reference the character’s story whilst strengthening their expressions and evoking empathy in the audience.
