The beauty of the common by Sakir Gökçebag

Most of the objects we use every day are totally underestimated, if not even almost non-existent to our minds. Turkish artist Sakir Gökçebag values the simple and the beauty that lies within. By taking the ordinary out of the ordinary he is shifting its context and giving it a new aesthetic, making him think about the things he is surrounded by on a daily basis without acknowledging its true elegancy.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
