About Esra GÜLMEN

Leaving her home in Istanbul to pursue a career in design in Frankfurt, visual artist Esra Gülmen sought to leave the conservative atmosphere of Turkey behind and establish herself in a country where she could be herself and be inspired. After also trying Amsterdam, she finally settled in Berlin, a city with which she has a ‘love-love relationship’. Now pursuing her own artistic projects, she spoke to us about her inspiring journey from Istanbul to Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Berlin, why her work feeds on the city's chaos, and a few of her favorite places.
