Station 16 has selected 16 street artists from around the globe, each to represent their home country. This collection of prints will act as a street art map of the world. One artist and print will be released each month, from a different country, until all 16 are revealed. We call this project, "A Global Street Art Story" (GSAS)
Based in Solothurn, though with Turkish roots, the artist is part of the photorealist scene. He mostly paints using acrylic rollers and with the help of brushes. An experimental use of UV-light sensitive paints or solvents has produced astonishing effects in his large-scale works. Onur grew up in Zuchwil in Switzerland’s Solothurn canton. After leaving school he completed training as a painter, followed by an apprenticeship as a theater painter in Solothurn. Onur then trained as a graphic artist at the advertising agency in Basel, going on to work in the profession for a year in Bern. In 2007 and 2008, he returned to the theatre, this time in Lucerne. Since 2008 he has worked as an independent painter and muralist.
