Cigdem Aky was born in Munich where she currently lives and works.

Cigdem Aky first studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich before continuing her art studies at the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe. In 2016 she became a master student. The focus of her painterly research undoubtedly lies in the search for an autonomous color structure that can unfold itself informally without being bound by color theory rules. In her color-rich works, she creates areas of tension between color and form, geometry and free movement, as well as between regulated state and chaos.
