Hakan Poyraz: AND THEN YOU DISAPPEARED —
Curator MARTIN MARYŠKA
Hakan Poyraz was born in 1986 in Ulm, Germany, where he later attended the BEVA Atelier Kunstschule. In 2011 he completed an internship at Media Design program at Südwest Presse in Germany. He studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg, Bavaria, before receiving a scholarship to Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in Istanbul.
During his time at BEVA Poyraz acquainted himself with multiple art techniques and he has now created his own style integrating graffiti, stencil art, graphic design, photography, and dripping techniques. Poyraz uses Plexiglas instead of traditional canvases as he feels it gives an added brilliance to the spray painted colors in his works.
