Aşk (Love) is a tender gesture performed by an accursed Ottoman soldier, exploring the idea of corruption and malice coexisting with tenderness and yearning.
Growing up in Istanbul, where Sarp often found himself bombarded with a reinvented, politically convenient version of Ottoman Empire's history, Sarp decided to reimagine the past century as well.
Yavuz created a story where, after losing World War 1, the Sultan sells his soul in exchange for an immortal army. These images tell the stories of what came after.

Giclée Fine-Art Prints
Our Giclée Fine Art Prints are produced on heavy-matte, acid-free 300gsm cotton photo-paper with 100% archival inks. Our full-time chemists formulate all substrates in-house to achieve museum-quality detail and color vibrancy that is protected for 100+ years.
Narrow on the front and deep on the sides our frame moldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art and modern profile that allows all the focus on your art. They are produced from the highest quality solid pine, primarily sourced from Italy. Each one is carefully selected, precision cut and assembled by hand at our factory. Hanging hardware is included so your artwork is ready to hang as soon as it arrives.
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
