Melbourne based photographer Cihan Bektas.
His work and style are influenced by many different aspects of historical art. He has pioneered the use of digital manipulation within his field. He has an unmistakable pictorial idiom, based on his humour, his playfulness and practically unlimited power of the imagination. His pictorial composition nonetheless remains simple and clear. The multiple levels of interpretation in Cihan Bektas Studio’s work point to surrealist art as the creative source of their inspiration. Breathtaking compositions and beauty.
He has been fortunate to have had numerous solo exhibitions. His art sells both nationally and internationally and has featured in publications such as Guardian AU, Worbz GER and XoXo Magazine TR,2020 Head-On Foto Biennial Exhibition, 2019 Chromatics Awards- Fine Art Honorable Choice, 2019 Sunstudios / SEPA, 2018 TedsCamera Winner Photo Comp,St. 2014 Petersburg Foto Festival, 2013 Avignon Art Biennial, 2012 Foto Istanbul Bienal.
