About Me

In the early days when he began to hear with his paintings, the interest of those who noticed his ability of painting, the artist used nails instead of brushes on the canvas. Haydar Ekinek caught a style that accepted him. The painter is spoken of by the abstract and soft figures of concrete and extreme cold lines reflected by the nail technic in his paintings around the paintings, the presentations of the historical figures, and the unexpected encounters of the colors which do not side by side in the soft texture of nature and even sometimes collisions. The abstract interpretation of his effort to go beyond the modern in his artist paintings is history and nature. The purpose is to drive the traces of Ekinek's life, history, and nature, which he has established with contemporary life, history, and nature, which he has not experienced, explaining or telling the present day, history or nature. In doing so, in every case, the first form of writing that people leave as life, the most permanent work of art is inspired by the writing of nails, and each nail is loaded with a story to tell. An Urartu king cries out with a fork in the mechanical frame; a Hittite nobleman always hides behind the iron bars we are surrounded by our homes, the bull figure emerging as a symbol of abundance is questioning the coldness of technology on Ekinek's canvas. The geometric shapes embellished with soft colors with a natural impression in every area of life, and figurines to come out of shapes are waiting for their secrets in the knowledge that they will be history in the future.

In the same way, the cat’s eye, the horse's galloping, the woman's mechanical outlines with vibrant colors, the iron bars, and the light of technology. In short, Ekinek's tablature suggests expanding the spaces where emotions are trapped in modern life, often in our modern life, and as a way to color our lives. He was born in the village of Çanakklı on March 15, 1967. He completed his primary and secondary education at the pier boarding school and his high school education at Van Industrial vocational high school.
