Yiğit explains that he is driven by the sheer delight of sharing his work, “My source of energy is sharing the excitement of my works with people”. In return, his work has gained lots of attention for its functionality; made from everyday objects aimed towards the community it ranges from corporate painting to furniture design. He has also created innovative concepts by using unusual canvases like leather and yacht sails. One of Yiğit’s aims is to give the observer a new perspective by transforming normal, everyday objects into customized works of art.
