Sedat Girgin - Illustrator
At first, I attended the fine arts high school. After Mimar receiving basic art education in fine art school, I entered Mimar Sinan University, Department of Industrial Design. When I was attending my department, I continued to draw patterns. In fact, I wanted to attend the painting department, however, because of the financial conditions at that time, I entered the Department of Industrial Design for the sake of having a guaranteed profession. And then, I began to practice in children's books in droves, entering Can publications. They were in pursuit of innovation at that time, with which I coincided to the full. Then, my works gained appreciation and my style was found to be slightly different. Apart from general children illustrations, it was found to be good as a good alternative.
While doing my drawings I actually try to reflect the sense Egon I feel at the moment. Generally, I love to draw out through a story. When studying in high school, I was influenced by Egon Schielle very much. I was looking his pictures constantly and I enjoyed his feelings. I mean the taste of “a his drawings and his comfort. I guess I so looked him a lot that I feel like carrying a bit of his influence. When I see my works, if I get somebody to say, “Oh. Sedat must have made it”, it is certainly acceptable for me.
We started to make music without considering anything. I feel very relax while playing drums. Sometimes, going studio and rehearsing while having work, giving concerts, and recording can be really hard but having extra job while I already have a job comforts me a little bit more. Music is indispensable.
