Ardan Ozmenoglu is a Turkish, multimedia artist. She implements a wide range of unique mediums including large-scale glass sculptures, Post-It notes, photography and neon lighting. Ozmenoglu’s art, ripe with sociopolitical commentary, playfully challenges the viewer to reconsider familiar images, products and notions. She uses ubiquitous items to create pieces of art that unite seemingly opposing ideas: the past and the present, art history and contemporary art trends, creativity and consumerism, repetition and individuality, the whole and the fragmented. Her brightly colored, bold art forces the viewer to consider everyday objects and ideas in a different light.
Ardan Ozmenoglu was born in Turkey in 1979. She attended Bilkent University in Ankara where she received her BFA in Urban Design and Landscape Architecture and her MFA in Graphic Design. Since 2006, she has had her work shown in over forty exhibitions internationally, both solo and group in countries such as Istanbul, Berlin, Croatia, and the United States.
Ozmenoglu currently lives and works in New York.
