Lives and works in Berlin and London.
Dolanbay, 1997 – 1998, studied 3D design at the University of Central England in Birmingham. 1998 – 2002, he studied Mixed Media Fine Art at the University of Westminster in London. At the same time he frequently visited the Art Academy (UdK) in Berlin, did research for his dissertation on “New German Painting and its Social, Political Engagement”. In 2005, with a group of artists he co-founded the non-profit project space Meinblau in Berlin, where he has begun “A” Project, a temporary platform for independent art projects. He has exhibited and performed in numerous group shows in London, Istanbul and Berlin. His first solo show in 2009 in Meinblau in Berlin was titled “Heavy Paintings”.
I want to share some of his performative installation, they’re perfect! He’s painting on ice and during the painting ice is melting and the canvas get painted. Because canvas is standing on the floor. Photos are from the
