The Art of


By Nicholas Forrest


When I was asked to write this article about the work of the 27 year old Turkish born, Spain

based artist Volkan Diyaroglu I was excited and honoured because Volkan is one of the most

talented artists I have ever come across. An artist whose use of colour and form suggests a

heightened visual-spatial intelligence and an extra-sensory perception of the visual language.

However, no matter what I write I cannot do his work justice because it is not the sort of work

that should be written about, it is the sort of work that should be experienced. Neither can I

really explain his work as it is the result of a process that even the artist himself cannot

explain – a process where Volkan surrenders himself to his work and allows intuition to guide

his every move. It is a very personal and intimate process which is driven by the subconscious

mind and is more about the artists own journey than anything else.
