Conceiving an ambition to master the art of printmaking he won a Turkish government overseas study scholarship and secured a place at the RCA where he gained an MA with Distinction (his talent being singled out by Peter Blake) and returned to lecture at Mimar Sinan University.
He moved to the UK in 1996 and has since been teaching at Kensington and Chelsea College and elsewhere and exhibiting widely.
