His works, MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Polond), C21 Museum (Kentucky, USA) Europe, located in many private collections in the Middle East and Turkey.

The works of the artist portrayed in a realistic style reflect the surreal stories of the woman and her imaginary world that remain in the dark. She skillfully combines the colorless atmosphere she fictionalizes in her compositions with her stories using Charoscuro, a regional lighting technique dating back to the Renaissance. In the works of Topdemir, who is romantic and lyrical like in the Symbolists, but at the same time a harsh reaction against society and taboos, "Woman" is seen in a serene, fantastic dystopian setting.
