The artist currecntly goes on his working in his studio.
The artist investigates the relationship among paiting, photograph and cinema. Ozbakir tries to give the impression of sorrow which belongs to humans in a context covered by miscommunication, loneliness and unhappiness in his paintings.
The artist has been affected by Ingmar Bergman’s films. The artist made the paintings of Bergman’s Persona, Viskningar och rop, Tystnaden and Fanny & Alexander. The artist turns the screens that he chooses into art works by refleting his spritual condition, environment and worries.
We can also come into the faces of nature in his other works.
We can also see the feelings of loneliness, introverioness, miscommunication, lovelessness and dividedness in his paintings.
The faces in Ozbakir’s painting expect us to touch them…
