Istanbul-based artist Selçuk Yılmaz just finished three animal masks made from hammered and welded steel. The masks represent a tiger, linx, and fox and are made up of very thin strands of metal that follow the curves of the face.
Of his process, Yılmaz writes: “For me solitude is a gateway to creativity. My art is a response to social alienation. I see how society is full of turmoil and chaos. Creativity is a process that is alive in all things, and relates with human roots running deep with meaning. This evolution, from poor progress to doing something better needs patience. We need patience and have to know pain.” [h/t boredpanda.com]
