The abstract perception of Can is far from normal. From beautifully distorted faces to an extreme case of medusa, he has executed some of the most intricate and fascinating 3D work. At first glance you can't be sure if it is some sort of clay or fabric material making up some of the grayscale looks of his characters. The tone overcasts a dark cloud and gives you the knot in your stomach feeling that you just stumbled upon something you were not supposed to see. Misconceptions, a sense of hiding or lack of self importance come to the surface. Something is weary about the work that is presented, but nothing short of amazing jaw dropping creations.
The wisping textures of the disfigured characters that some what resemble people, and hair give off something out of a twisted tim burton or Guillermo Del Toro movie. Every detail and layer appears to be so neatly placed and very methodical. We would love to jump inside his mind to see what the inspiration was and how he came to this style, texture and tone.
All of his work is shocking and one of a kind, from disfigured faces and floating skin whales followed by Michelin man looking characters in desert or stranded environments. It is a body of work that could give you nightmares or inspire you, we hope you sleep well tonight.
