Born in İstanbul in 1978, Olça Tansuk graduated from İzmir Buca Anadolu Fine Arts High School and subsequently from Marmara University Fine Arts Faculty, Ceramics-Glass Department in 2004. Group and solo exhibitions have ranged from painting, to mosaics and glass work. She opened her studio in Kaş, on the Turkish Lycian coast, in 2014. Here she devotes her time to creating her works as well as teaching adults and children. Her welcoming nature allows other artists and people to flourish in the community.

She contributes in many workshops such as, art festivals and exhibitions taking place in Istanbul, Germany, India, France and Greece. In Taksuk’s spare time, she loves to involve herself in a variety of contemporary dance workshops and festivals, all within the framework of creative expression.

Tansuk continues to organise music and art festivals, individual and group exhibitions. She welcomes the opportunity to collaborate in future exhibitions in Turkey and overseas.

An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else’s.
