Warsaw born Kris Cieslak has exhibited in Paris, Rome, Milan and Warsaw and is now based in London. He has also managed numerous art exhibitions and events working with many talented artists.
He has always had a real passion for the visual arts. Since 2004, he has devoted all of his time to painting, sculpting and ceramics, creating a unique painting style known as "stripism" where the only limitations are the borders of our own imagination.
His biggest love in life is people: “concentrate on interpersonal relations, self-improvement, introspection and understanding of others, transferring the conclusions of these observations to my paintings.”
Having studied at the Academia Italiana Fine Art School in Florence and completed a bachelor and master's degree in Fine Arts in Istanbul, Emre Yusufi, also known as YUSUFY was inspired by the mythical and venerable hero - Hercules. This led the Turkish artist, graphic designer, and art director to create sculptures and images that play on the traditional Greek Gods. Working with a combination of photography and 3D modeling, he brings a modern day Hercules to life in a range of unique forms, whether on motorcycles, wearing Converse, or playing water polo.
Taking inspiration from the famous Turkish quote “A nation devoid to art and artist cannot have a full experience” Emre’s creativity and imagination is intertwined in every component of his work.
Universally acclaimed and exhibited in international and personal art fairs, Yusufi’s art is widely collected and remains part of important art collections in Istanbul, London, Paris, Courchevel, Cannes, Luxembourg, New York, Miami, Rome, Bologna, Honfleur, St. Paul de Vance, Monaco, Spa.
