Bio

A reoccurring pattern in Belgin Yucelen’s artwork is her ambition to justify her place as an artist with respect to her positionality in society. This is why the tales she tells with her artwork take place between East and West from ancient times and now. The themes of her artwork varies from children in war, women with no rights, refugees, our communication skills, lost traditions and our connection with nature. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and has been recognized by organizations such as the Colorado Creative Industries, Moon and Stars Project Grant, Clark Hulings Fund, Hemera Foundation, and National Sculpture Society.  Her work has been largely publicized in publications such as PhotoPhore, Pittsburgh Articulate, The Tribune Review, Daily Camera, and Chicago Reader. She recently founded the House of Serein which is a creative space for community use and studios for artists. She is currently serving as a board member at the Dairy Arts Center and as a grant panelist at the Boulder Arts Commission.
