Onur Dinc

Born in 1979 - Turkey


Onur Dinc (1979) is a rising star in the photorealist scene around Bern.
Based in Solothurn, though with Turkish roots, the artist is part of the photorealist scene. Onur grew up in Zuchwil in Switzerland’s Solothurn canton. After leaving school he completed training as a painter, followed by an apprenticeship as a theater painter in Solothurn. Onur then trained as a graphic artist at the advertising agency FAVO in Basel, going on to work in the profession for a year in Bern. In 2007 and 2008, he returned to the theatre, this time in Lucerne. Since 2008 he has worked as an independent painter.

Onur paints mostly using acrylic rollers and with the help of brushes. An experimental use of UV-light sensitive paints or solvents has produced astonishing effects in his large-scale works.

Onur employs an impressive play of color nuances. Pictures are painted in delineated spaces in a single color, while managing to retain a photorealistic character. Through the use of both matte and gloss mixes of the same tones, an image is created that only emerges in its full detailed splendor when hit by light in a certain way, flashing up as the viewer walks past, and revealing a mysterious outline when viewed from a distance.

In 2013 he created together with the Swiss artist Wes21 a large-format work at the 5 Pointz Building in New York City, which gave him a huge publicity. In 2014 he will take part in the Richmond Mural Project in Richmond (VA).
