    Istanbul born Dr. Selçuk Gürisik is fiber artist related to felt works, folklore textile works, and fashion art. On the completion of his Ph.D.’s degree at University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design researching into Anatolian Felt Making, he worked on international art and design projects, which are costume and set designing to performing arts and theater. Also he has been art directing for the film-industry. Currently, he is participating in community projects and organizing workshops/exhibitions (social responsibility). These are emphasizing upon the importance of the disappearing regional cultural-identities under threat from globalization. His practice-based interdisciplinary design approach enables the production of a broad range of artifacts bringing an appreciation of the cultural inheritances. The combination of multi-medium fabric-making techniques enables the transformation between traditional and contemporary concepts representing the aspects of the post-postmodernism. Working as an art director and designing scenery and costumes facilitated a realization about visible and invisible qualities of the objects relating to personifying them in their belonging cultural locations. Dr. Gurisik is visiting Lecturer and Artist in Resident at Sabanci University, TR.
