Alpay Efe’s body of work focuses primarily on figurative painting with contemporary influences. The intimate renditions of people and objects, infused with references of pop culture and modern zeitgeist, synthesize characteristics of the past with an eye for the present. Realistic in nature, these paintings take on abstractions with vibrant colors and artificial lighting – leaving the result with something almost mystical and open for many interpretations.
