1960, Istanbul

The artist worked at Özdemir Altan and Adnan Çoker Ateliers for two years during his education at Mimar Sinan University Fine Arts Faculty. He then continued to work as an assistant at the same faculty. Akdemir's abstract works include multiple layers and different dimensions.

Akdemir brings together different canvases to examine the material relationships of various materials such as footprints, rust and gunpowder. Afterwards, he cuts these pieces and even burns them and brings them together with acrylic paint.

Akdemir spends his time in Turkey between Istanbul and Bodrum.
