Art / Elif

Elif Yilmazturk is a British artist and illustrator of Irish and Turkish descent. Since leaving University of the Creative Arts in 2015 with an Art Foundation, she has gone on grow her portfolio with a fashion PR internship, all the while pursuing a successful modelling career. Her true love however, is her art. Embarking on a self-taught career has been daunting for her, but she has found it key in allowing her to fully express her fashion influences, ideas and quirky style.

Her work has an illustrative feel and strong character. By reusing and reinterpreting the same faces, she is able to portray the irony in the darker themes of today’s life, relationships and fashion, in a lighthearted and unconventional manner.
