Merve Morkoç aka Lakormis is a painter/illustrator who lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey.
The artist explains the work by saying, “My paintings are inspired by the culture and life of the streets, where I feel independent. For me, streets, gallery walls, the internet, paper and any materials of any size can easily turn into efficient spaces. In this context, I’m enthused by animation figures, commercials and narrative styles of urban origin that surround me. In my works, I’m working on to be capable of creating alluring narration and forms, while keeping a characteristic distance with the viewer.
