Interview with Oksal yesilok

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I started to study design at the university. I have always been interested in different artworks, minimal drawings and designs. It was a passion for me to make and produce pictures since I was a child, and it is great to be doing it professionally now.
What is "design" for you?
Design, sometimes function, sometimes aesthetic, or both. Each area has a sense of design, but for me it's more than the planning function. Passion is aesthetic, unique, and creativity.
What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
I like to apply various techniques by hand made. This could be everything. Paint, gold leaf, marker etc. I love transparent materials, like glass and Poly(methyl methacrylate).
When do you feel the most creative?
I usually enjoy more than working at night, but sometimes it feels better to start early in the day.
What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
I always keep my motivation, and I continue with the same excitement.
When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
In Slovenia, I participated in a theme exhibition of toy designs for small and big kids.
Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
I can get inspiration from everything around me. There is no limit to this. People, nature, objects and various objects.
Can you talk a little about your design process?
Time and space are so important, they have a motivating influence for me. Legolandan, a book I bought by liking its design, everything that stood around. I am more productive when I create my own space. I am more curious when producing a new design idea. I'm starting the research and sharing my ideas with people around. I value people who have their own talents, I follow them, I observe them. This may be a gallery artist or a craftsman.
From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
You start to look at everything around you with aesthetic perception and you can really choose the right and creative one. For a person with this perception the world is really complex. :)
