A master of creativity and construction, Turkish artist Server Demirtaş brings life to his artistic machines with intricate engineering.
Desiring Machines intrigue with smooth, humanlike movements that maintain stark contrast to the robotic appearance of each creation.
As a young child, Demirtaş was amazed and excited by mechanical objects; he learned mechanics and production methods from his technician Father. As a student, Server started a business creating unique and special cardboard boxes for pastry shops, as well as paper toys. During those times, Demirtaş also built machines to assist in production, including one for making paper parasols. Early on in his artistic career, Demirtaş was known for three-dimensional artworks created with PVC-coated newspapers.
A graduate of the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University with a focus in painting, Server Demirtaş has been passionate about building mechanical sculptures in movement as well as video art since 1997.
