Nejat Sati, B.A., M.A., Dokuz Eylül University, Izmir, works as an independent professional artist in Istanbul and has participated artist-in-residences in programs in Turkey, Germany, and Nederland. Since the 2005s he has participated in numerous international exhibitions, biennials, and triennials.

Nejat Sati’s abstract work incorporates a variety of techniques and media, including painting, performance, drawings, sculpture, collaborative works and site-specific installations, often experimental materials. In his enigmatic painting Sati explores cultural hybridity and transculturality as basic conditions of our globalised lives.

Sati’s vibrant, large-scale recent works layer colour fragments with applications and scrapings of imposto and fosforic material, expressing complex psychological histories and emotions. The immersive nature of colour is fully illustrated.

The book comprises of nearly hundred images from past ten years, with an emphasis on his most recent work series. These colour intensive works which could be perceived as reflections of the layers of the artist’s subconsciousness, despite being produced simultaneously different time periods, are interconnected and in a continuous dialogue with each other.
