Burak Kutlay (1985, İzmir), who started working as an assistant in Devrim Erbil's workshop at the end of his undergraduate education, then graduated from Devabil Kara workshop. Combining human figures with nature and urban landscapes in his works, the artist focuses on man's serious invasion of the settlements he established and the living spaces of other living things, ignoring the self-created fauna. He draws attention to the fact that although human beings derive a significant portion of their food from animals, in order to increase our cities and population even more, they see animals as consumption products without thinking about their lives and lineages, and that other living things are transformed into mere commodities in established metropolises. And in fact, the artist tells the human again by combining the images of the city that describe the human and the greatest order he has established.
