Mustafa Hulusi

Born: 1971

Hometown: Turkish-Cypriot

Lives and Works: London

 

Mustafa Hulusi’s works weave in and out apprehensions of an empathetic presence of strong colour and graphic clarity, alongside the stresses of geographical and political division between borders. This, in various ways, dwell on histories of migration and exchange between Europe and Asia. Hulusi’s personal position and history adds to this background -Turkish-Cypriot-born, London-raised, his family emigrating to the UK following Greece’s 1974 coup d’état and the subsequent conflict with Turkey over control of the island. By combining diverse artistic styles and references to pop culture, advertising, and Middle Eastern and Western history in his works, Hulusi investigates how different visual “languages” shape our perception. Hulusi’s work moves within the territory of, as the artist claims, “the growing estrangement from the dominant socio-political ideology governing artists which has often led to an introspective and escapist mental space, a re-enchanted artistic space that counters the disenchantment of social and cultural life today.” Hulusi often raises questions about the role of institutions in the art world.
