Hazal Firat // Turkey
Hazal Firat (b.1989) works in projects based on photography, drawing and materials. She describes her works in a sphere of fantasy. Nothing is what it seems and all we see is limited by our understanding in a physical world of ‘here and now’. Indeed, you can reach a surreal or an avant-garde result when you alter the time and the space and also the gender, and these results can also become a solid reality with an artwork. After finishing Lycée Notre Dame Sion French High School in Istanbul, 2003, she worked at art galleries and studied product design in Yeditepe University, Istanbul. In the meantime, she graduated The Bachelor Degree in Yeditepe University with an honour degree (Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design). Since then she works as a freelance graphic designer and gives art class workshops for children.
