Born in Adıyaman in 1964, Ekrem Yalçındağ studied at İzmir Dokuz Eylül University, Faculty of Fine Arts and completed his master’s degree. Between 1994-99, he worked as a professor at Frankfurt Städelschule. He studied with Hermann Nitsch. Yalçındağ, who uses geometric and floral motifs in his works as a tribute to handcraftsmanship, establishes a connection between art and design based on the traditional techniques of painting. While motifs create visual illusions for the viewer through repetition and intertwining, they point to timelessness in the cultural context.

The artist, who has held many exhibitions at home and abroad, has works in the Kunstmuseum, Stuttgart, The Hague/European Patent Office, Munich/Goetz Collection, Munich/Allianz Collection. Ekrem Yalçındağ, who lives and works in İstanbul, has been working with EArt Gallery since 2019.
