Born on August 19, 1985 in Istanbul, Yuşa Yalçıntaş started his education of Painting at Marmara University Faculty of Fine Arts in 2005. After studying at the Faculty of Kuvataideakatemia, Faculty of Fine Arts, Printing Department between 2009-2010, he completed his education in 2011.
Creating an artistic language by following the set of drawing rules he sets; his works contain elements of illustration aesthetics, the relationship between play and ritual, and the modern Turkish education system after the Republic, quite similar to the childrens’ books from the past. Since these fictions, in which only children exist, contain a non-linear perspective, they have an 'unreal' appearance similar to miniature and Far Eastern painting or Medieval Western art. In the artist's own words, the works offer an ‘artificial stage' to the audience.
Yuşa Yalçıntaş lives and works in Istanbul.
