Today, the world knows Uğur as the artist behind the stories told through his digital collages. In reality, he was a business-school graduate leading an ordinary life when tragedy struck in Syria. Then he saw the little body of AylanKurdi, washed ashore in Turkey. He felt like he needed to do something, to act, anything not to feel powerless.
My collages are a showcase of the world that is willing to go on pretending that everything is normal and the harsh realities that many – even some of those offering compassion – would be happy to sweep under the rug. But I believe my art provided the perspective that could not be ignored anymore, for both sides!
Parallel Universe is a division between comfort and privilege of consumerist society and the consequences of inequality felt by millions of disenfranchised people.
It is also aiming to remind the people of underdeveloped countries that they could find better government, education, or science, sending them a message that they can be as strong and peaceful as the developed countries.
