Aysen Kaptanoglu graduated Wacker Academy in Amsterdam in 2021. Aysen was born and raised in Istanbul and decided to move to Amsterdam in 2015. Leaving behind a career in literature, Kaptanoglu pursued her dream of studying art at the academy.


“Following an interest in painting plants and similarly chaotic interiors earlier, at this moment of my artistic journey I am discovering a hidden part of my consciousness with much excitement, by telling my own stories through imaginary figures and dream-like spaces inspired by everything that surrounds me.” – Aysen Kaptanoglu
