Yasemin Oncu

Digital Media, UNTAPPED Emerging Artists, Booth U-15

Yasemin Oncu was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1990. She received her BA in Visual Arts from Sabanci University in Istanbul in 2012. She completed the Interdisciplinary Masters of Art, Media and Design Graduate Program at OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario in 2016. Yasemin's works 'demonstrate' how one can artistically subvert all kinds of moral degradation associated with the demonization of other. In her works, as a witness to recent dramatic political events involving excessive cruelty, she often uses the monster as a metaphor to problematize clash of extremes by introducing it as a third party to antagonistic conflicts of various kinds. Her paintings join the spectacle with a view to raising a humorous critical sense about the deceptive nature of our daily encounters.
