About Diyogenius

Diogenes also known as Diogenes the Cynic (Διογένης ὁ ΚυνικόςDiogénēs ho Kynikós), was a Greek philosopher and one of the founders of Cynic philosophy. He was born in Sinope, an Ionian colony on the Black Sea coast of modern day Turkey, in 412 or 404 BC and died at Corinth in 323 BC.

Diogenes was a controversial figure. His father minted coins for a living, and Diogenes was banished from Sinope when he took to debasement of currency. After being exiled, he moved to Athens and criticized many cultural conventions of the city. He modelled himself on the example of Heracles, and believed that virtue was better revealed in action than in theory. He used his simple lifestyle and behaviour to criticize the social values and institutions of what he saw as a corrupt, confused society.

He had a reputation for sleeping and eating wherever he chose in a highly non-traditional fashion, and took to toughening himself against nature. He declared himself a cosmopolitan and a citizen of the world rather than claiming allegiance to just one place. There are many tales about his dogging Antisthenes’ footsteps and becoming his “faithful hound”.

Diogenes made a virtue of poverty. He begged for a living and often slept in a large ceramic jar, or pithos, in the marketplace. He became notorious for his philosophical stunts, such as carrying a lamp during the day, claiming to be looking for a man (often rendered in English as “looking for an honest man”). He criticized Plato, disputed his interpretation of Socrates, and sabotaged his lectures, sometimes distracting listeners by bringing food and eating during the discussions. Diogenes was also noted for having mocked Alexander the Great, both in public and to his face when he visited Corinth in 336 BC.

Diogenes was captured by pirates and sold into slavery, eventually settling in Corinth. There he passed his philosophy of Cynicism to Crates, who taught it to Zeno of Citium, who fashioned it into the school of Stoicism, one of the most enduring schools of Greek philosophy. No writings of Diogenes survive but there are some details of his life from anecdotes (chreia), especially from Diogenes Laërtius’ book Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers and some other sources.

About Artifacts inspiration source

The inspiration for these works was interpreted through the metaphors, teachings and lives of famous philosophers. In fact, I have integrated and ossified the sentences that will leave an impression in every reader’s mind with my own art and sculpture world. From my point of view of art, it will not be the first, and will not be the last, it is like a written poem from my soul.

Sculpture to me, means creating a formation by using literatüre and music many times. This is the way I define myself as an artist.

Sculpture also mean to me, juıst like drawing a fine line in geometry and reaching a conclusion, when you draw a line in geometry, a problem is solved, a conclusion is drawn. Just as when when words and sentences are put together in Geometry and Literature,  a composition is written, such is Sculpture to me. Different materials can be used to make art, sometimes even a piece of scrap can be a complementary element to an artifact. A thread can be made from a string, ceramic, porcelain from a clay, or epoxy, polyester, glass can find life, in art. A sadekar can make magnificent bone combs, a turtle shell spoon or bowl. Compared to other components, Polyester is relatively faster, easier and less demanding on equipment, and it is  easy to level. It has no complications like glass material. This does not however mean that, of course, Polyester sculptures can be re-molded and technically transformed into glass sculptures.
