Thursday 14 November
19:00 – 20:30
During the session with Memed Erdener (aka. Extramücadele), play with words, change them, bend them and combine them using Procreate on iPad. Forget all you know about calligraphy. Inspired by Picasso’s Constellation Series, explore how a letter as a design element can be taken out of its own form, come together with other letters, and turn into an artwork in itself.
Moderator: Tuğçe Akbulut

“I look for the subject that I will attend on in books and on the streets. When I find it, I transform it into an aesthetic form by drawing, painting or sculpture.”
