Coplu’s surreal compositions exercise a simple yet effective visual vocabulary. Employing vivid colours and textured surfaces, his works often explore themes of love, dreams and relationships. The massive heart-butterfly motif splits the work into a dichotomous composition; male and female. Although separated from each other, the connection between the men and women remains unbroken. The symbol of a butterfly suggests an inseverable bond that sheer distance cannot break. One wing is incomplete without the other, and together, they create a beautiful yet fleeting existence.

    Artist Statement

    "My work is a mirror that reflects the feelings, beliefs, thoughts, fears and experiences that we all share in life. The subjects of my paintings are the relationships between ourselves, and the environments we are connected to. My figures are mostly on the edge of contrasting feelings such as hope and despair, joy and pain, love and hate. I aim to provoke viewer's thoughts with contradictions because most of our acts and instincts encompass these. 

    Generally, there are three strong elements in my paintings that I have the privilege to combine, all of which I try to express a vibrancy through - color, humor and technique. Being raised alongside broad cultural diversities, where all feelings and levels of expression were represented by color, they became very much part of my life. Humor is a key element in my paintings as I try to see the funny side in all things - I believe it is one of the most effective ways to open minds and raise consciousness.

    Being a self-taught artist I have had the opportunity of developing my free style and uniqueness through having a free soul and mind. I try to combine my creative elements in a simple, instinctive way so that they strike a chord with anybody who has experienced what life brings their way. I have just recently decided to publish my work for the first time in 20 years offering collectors exclusive limited edition prints. Life is Beautiful… "
