BIO

 

Ebru Duruman was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1992. At the age of 18 she moved to the US to study at the Rhode Island School of Design. She graduated in 2015 with a Bachelors of Architecture (BArch) and Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA). She then moves to New York City to join the internationally renowned architecture firm, Pei Cobb Freed and Partners. In 2017 she decides to pursue her passion in painting by joining The Art Students League of New York.

Her paintings and drawings reflect sexuality and architecture, presenting herself as the central subject. She challenges the customary role of women sexuality and their inner struggle. Her work explores abstract and existential moments, around pain and pleasure, life and death. It allows her to examine the primitive reality. She explores deep emotions through the interaction of colors and forms; the way they blend and transform have been a fascination to her since a very young age.
