Recep Çiftçi

Recep Çiftçi Born in 1968 in Konya, Turkey, Recep Çiftçi relocated to Paris with his family in 1975. After studying art and French literature at the university, he became a student of Luc Simon, a contemporary representative of the symbolist painter and sculptor Goya and Chagall schools, at the Reims Academy of Fine Arts. It was during this period that he developed his skills in oil painting and acrylic techniques, shaping his future artistic trajectory.
Upon returning to Turkey in 2001, Recep Çiftçi continued his artistic endeavors, focusing on themes of creation and inner journey. According to Çiftçi, "Truth is not something we can touch or grasp." To attain truth, he believes that we need to make efforts, change our perspectives, and remain open to new ideas.
In Çiftçi's works, which emphasize that clarity of truth is achieved through achieving a consistent harmony, an initial glance reveals abstract color compositions. However, when observed through the lenses of mobile phone cameras or compound lenses of cameras, these seemingly abstract paintings reveal a semblance. Recep Çiftçi has brought together his works, all of which incorporate optical illusions, under the title "VERITY."
The artist has held nine solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions internationally.
