Candas Sisman
The "Nerdworkers" of Istanbul

A focus on Istanbul's bustling contemporary art scene
10 October 2014

The visual arts scene in Istanbul has taken off over the past 10 years. Nikki Bedi meets three of the coolest and most surprising of these young artists on the Asian side of Istanbul.


Candas Sisman, Erdem Dilbaz and Osman Koc are category-defying artists – as interested in engineering, software and mathematics as they are music, painting and sculpture. They call it ‘nerdworking’.

They create spellbinding public art, installations and animations – one piece uses lasers, lights and software to project onto the neoclassical Haydarpasa rail terminal.
