Turkish born Muge Fatma Demir is a multi talented, natural born artist.
Muge has always excelled at art and design and studied art for three years in Turkey. She also has a degree in International Studies from the University of Bursa. While studying English in Kent/UK, to prepare for a masters degree, she continued painting and participated in local exhibitions where she caught the attention of art dealers who were impressed by the quality of her work which is now in very popular demand.
Independent and original, she prefers to avoid stereotypes and happily explores a variety of styles and subjects yet manages to interpret them in a skilful, unique manner to produce art of undeniable quality.
‘I’m not keen on the idea of developing just one style, or endlessly producing different kinds of variety of the same sort of thing over and over again. Art needs to be constantly evolving and changing to stay alive.
"I need to keep my mind open to new ideas, subjects and styles to create fresh art."
Fortunately Muge is able to excel at whatever style or media she uses. Her latest abstract work is clean, fresh and energetic feel to it. First, she sketches continues scribbles and lines and turn them into unique figures. In her paintings every line is connected to one another.
Muge also experiments with digital art and photography and is an advanced user of Photoshop. ‘Photography has never been so easy or accessible as it is today. I think that if Andy Warhol was alive today he’d just love Photoshop’
Some of her commissions include art and design work for Visacard, Newsquest media group plc, Harrods as well as several art websites. Her work is in numerous art galleries, private and corporate collections throughout Europe. She was featured in Art of England Magazine in 2008.
She moved to Dubai in 2016 after living in the UK for 12 years.
