Ismet Yüksel creates massive sculptures inspired by ruins and deconstructed buildings

Turkish Ceramic Artist Ismet Yüksel creates massive, yet light-appearing concrete sculptures. Growing up in the old city of Eskişehir in northwestern Turkey, and now living in Izmir, a city which is one of the oldest settlements of the Mediterranean basin, it is not surprising that history had a huge influence on him. Most of his inspiration he draws from ruins and historical deconstructed buildings. His sculptures reminding us of something timeless and steadfast, almost like endured evidence of long forgotten times.
