Ebru, also known as paper marbling, is one of the most important Turkish arts which can be defined as painting on water and transferring this painting onto paper.
Born in 1971 in Istanbul, Ebru Uygun graduated from Finishing School and Webster University of Geneva. Ebru Uygun stands out with her modern vision of this traditional Turkish art by introducing a 3D element into her work and transferring her art on wood, tile, cloth, and other mixed media. “The harmonious dance of the colors reflects my wonderland!” says Uygun, “It’s a world where evil has no place. It’s pure and clear. When I’m marbling, I discover new worlds… It’s a joy.”
Ebru Uygun is very dedicated to her charitable work. In 1994 she founded a charity for children with socio-economical difficulties in order for them to get education - TOÇEV. Uygun is the author of “Room 102” (2005), “Hearts I’ve Touched” (2006), “Growing Up Together” (2009), “Heart River” (2013), and has contributed with her ebru work to “Karma Exhibition” organized by The Association of Artists and Art Lovers (SSD) in 2008, to the “Exhibition for Somalian Children” organized by Silivri Rotary Club and SSD in 2011 and to “Hand in Hand Exhibition” organized by SSD in association with TOÇEV in 2011.
