Nurhan Gokturk

Artist + Nurhan Gokturk

I have been drawing, making and taking things apart since I was very young. Growing up, the most ordinary things seemed spectacular. They still do. I have an overwhelming desire to share and express the immediacy I sense in the extraordinary, similar to the way I did when I was young.
