GREETINGS!

Cansu is a multi-disciplinary creative who has a background in design, art and academic research. She is a self-proclaimed ‘maker of things’. (See; #cansumakesstuff & #cansutakesphotos). She is highly stimulated by the playful and vibrant spirit of pure and creative childhood, and constantly aiming to get out of ordinary. She is interested in openly expressing herself through her vibrant personality and gnome-spirit.

Her artwork constitutes an intuitive fashion by compounding experimentalism. She mainly uses photography, videography, graphic design, sound design and literary media. She has been establishing online & offline presence as a digital media artist / visual designer / writer / editor / curator / researcher through conferences, social media, magazines, journals, zines and publicly exhibiting internationally.

Cansu is the founder of the graphic design studio 'Enpitsu' and she has a print shop 'cacu' which contributes to children's foundations every month.

Apart from her ever-creative world, Cansu enjoys teaching yoga and meditation, and considers herself as a life-long student to build an intentional life & meaningful connections. She is also interested in reiki, sound meditation, mindfulness and yoga for children, volunteering, sewing, ecological life, sound design, connecting with humans & nature, learning Spanish, vlogging, improvising and being a voice-over actor.
