Nermin Yokuş İpekçiler was born and grew up in Istanbul. Her first interest in art began when she saw Rodin’s sculptures in the Rodin Museum, this spark inspired her to take sculpture education at Mimar Sinan University. She completed her fine arts education at Yeditepe University Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Plastic Arts and Painting. She graduated with high honors in 2022 with her master’s thesis on the Aesthetics and Ontology of Silence in Figurative Western Painting. She participated in many group exhibitions and solo exhibitions at home and abroad.

The artist, who includes objects and figures that evoke a sense of timelessness in her works, using themes such as nature, mythology, subconscious, history and identity, presents the effects of emotions and thoughts about life on people from a different perspective.

“In its simplest form, my vision of art is the embodiment of all my emotional reactions to life, a sincere confrontation, a way of expressing myself. In my works, very briefly, I am inspired by everything that relates to the deeper, essence of human. To pursue stories, to collect them, to tell them, and to reflect them with a figurative expression”. The artist works equally in the fields of painting and sculpture. While she uses mixed techniques such as oil paint, acrylic, pastel and charcoal in painting, she performs carving and modeling with stone, clay and other materials in Sculpture.

The artist still continues to produce paintings and sculptures in her art studios in Kadıköy Yeldeğirmeni/Istanbul and Imvros, and writes articles about art history.
