His art describes Karadana
“Discipline in the colors, perfection in detail. For centuries practiced and still preserving techniques. Indescribable pleasure arising from the period between design and completion, from the gradual approach to the goal, from the fantasy of limitation. These rules and sensitivities connect me with the traditional Turkish ornament art through my own style. “

"Abstraction is not a synthesis, but a way out; a way to turn "disciplinary" impatience, pain and lust, freedom and oppression, into the colors of my imagination. 

"My pictures are between birth and death, my points are everything I know, including you."
You are born after the point. You live between the dots and die drawing last point. This is an inevitable cycle. 

Well then; dot dot dot...
