Vildan Hoşbak reflects what he wants to have with his small works
Vildan Hoşbak, who graduated from Dokuz Eylül University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Sculpture and completed his master’s degree in the Department of Art and Design of the same university, designs miniature structures to express himself and display his art. The artist says that, based on personal memory, he actually presents moments or sections that can be common stories of many people. The topic you want to tell and the way you approach it leads you to do small-scale work. Vildan, who was previously interested in this business with small objects such as tables, chairs and toys, little by little begins to place these elements in a space. The details of the elements in each of his works are so realistic and proportional that it is not even possible to understand that the work is in miniature without a human hand involved.
All kinds of materials are used in production and waste is recycled
For Vildan, it can be a material to be used on wood, paper, plastic packaging, cardboard boxes, small beads, jewelry materials or any work that is about to go to waste. Nothing is ready or a purchase, everything is modeled from scratch. In this way, it also uses materials considered waste. It is up to skill to know the structure of the material and to predict where it can be used. In this way, more creative works come out.
The construction time of the works varies according to the time allotted daily and the size of the works. The artist claims that each project takes 1 to 2 months on average. Vildan, who shared his latest work (It all started here) about a week ago, aims to go to the beginning of everything in this series, where it is.

The person impressed by the artist in this field is Henry Kupjack, the only active representative of miniature art today.
