Baris Saribas

Born in 1979 - Turkey


Baris Saribas, is a painter born in Turkey in 1979. He studied art and design at the Anatolian University during a year and then joined the Marmara University in Istanbul, where he graduated. Along with his studies, he worked with Ekrem Kahraman, a renowned Turkish artist. He currently lives and works in Istanbul.

Baris Saribas gets inspired by Pop art and by Expressionism to paint pieces where calm and destruction intertwine.

The artist normally works by subject: he dedicated several years of his work to a specific subject, of which he studied the symbols in order to be able to transfigure them in his abstract compositions. Along his career, Baris Saribas has always have a tendency to study women photographers, war planes and hot air ballons...out of context, the subject is revisited, stripped of the usual symbols with which he is normally associated.The artist represents them from a new perspective.
Baris Saribas's work, questions our own representations of the world, our childish and thoughtless representations structuring the image that we have of reality. Smoothness, poetry, and world issues are reunited in the work of the Turkish artist.

Baris Saribas has already participated in several exhibitions, including one at the Stux Gallery in New York and several in Art Basel Miami Beach, the Contemporary Art Fair. He inaugurated his first solo exhibition in 2002.
