About SYH

Background

Sevcan is a British-kurdish artist. She was born in Turkey but now lives in south london with her family. She also writes and illustrates children's books.

 

Style 

Sevcan explores ideas and emotions through the use of lines. She mixes a range of mediums such as ink, acrylic and oil to create desired textures for her lines. To keep the attention on the lines, Sevcan utilises very little colour in her work. She focuses on lines found on the human body, predominately the female figure, and nature with a particular focus on trees to convey the interconnection between ourselves and the environment. Her views as a feminist, an environmentalist and ethnic minority are undeniably present in her work. 

Influences

Felix Vallotton, Olafur Elliason, William blake, paul klee, Egon Schiele, Edvard Munch, Hans Bellmer, Yves Tanguy and francis bacon.
