BIOGRAPHY

Esra Ebru (b. 1983) is a Turkish painter and artist from Istanbul, based in the USA. Ebru creates autobiographical narrative paintings that resemble a continuous journal entry. Her paintings feature a singular central character, often herself, gazing back at the audience. Exploring themes of solitude, nature, and the self, her work reveals the expansiveness of identity. Due to her background in acting and theater, Ebru paints with a heightened sense of shapeshifting, conjuring new characters with vibrant colors and details and building a world of palpable intimacy. Esra received her BFA in Acting and Playwriting at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle in 2009. In 2016-17 she studied Classical Figure Painting at the distinguished Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy.
