Mythological Stories

about Ege Islekel

Ege Islekel grew up listening to his father’s “mythological stories”, which sparked a subsequent fascination with the convergence of ancient and contemporary culture. Upon obtaining a degree in Urban Planning, the artist and designer strategically moved from Turkey to Milan: Here you see history on every corner, and have the chance to observe how history and contemporary life come together.

As many other creative minds of our time, Ege just brings ancient world nostalgia into the modern day, subjecting classical figures to contemporary circumstances. The resulting juxtaposition is striking — discomforting in some instances, satirical in others.

“My aim is to express what I’m thinking about lifee — from war to social media — in an ironic way. I prefer to show my thoughts through art.
