Hey! it's Ulas.

 
 
Born in Aydın, Turkey, I’ve studied and worked in a curious range of fields before committing to a creative career.
 
In 2015, I rediscovered my passion for drawing while watching an animated story about the life of Zeki Müren, the first and biggest Turkish queer icon that came into prominence in the 50s. I’ve started following an online art course the same year with a very specific goal in mind: to celebrate the often overlooked yet established queer culture of my land through art.In 2017, I moved to Amsterdam still in pursuit of the same dream which has allowed my work to resonate with an international queer community and allies.
 
I am a member of the European-Turkish Contemporary Artists and I work with brands under my creative studio WOO Branding, where I produce bespoke visual design.
