This Artist Uses Immigration Paperwork as Her Canvas

by Amina Suleimamagich

Istanbul-born artist Merve Iseri, who now resides in London, uses immigration papers as her canvas. Her medium is oil and that is very clear by the oil stained outlines around the streaks of paint. Her inspiration stemmed from the time she spends filling out paper work to live and work in London as an immigrant. Iseri's artwork is relevant to the refugee crisis the Middle East and Europe are experiencing currently.
