Kemal Tufan, who managed to surprise the audience every time with his ironic works, continues to work in areas such as installation, performance and video as well as his sculptures made using different materials. It is always possible to perceive the multi-layered structure in the ironic / allegorical sculptures of the artist who takes nature itself as a reference.
