Artist Name

Elif Cepniler

Born: 1991

Hometown: Istanbul

Based in: Istanbul

Elif began painting at 7 years old. Her passion for painting directed her to study interior architecture. After graduating from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, she worked in various architectural offices in İstanbul. She continued to paint consistently. She works with multidisciplinary designers and in the creative processes of various brands. Elif describes herself as an observer and a holistic designer. She currently continues her work with the odd+id+co brand, which she founded in 2015.

For about three years, she realized that she had trouble focusing on the life path she had just drawn and was lost. Her paintings helped her discover her inner-self.

She decided to share these abstract works, all of which were unique and only things, which came out of the emotions she felt in the moment. Because for someone, these things that break away from the moment can be a reflection of another moment for someone else.
