“The watercolor paintings of Turkish artist Yiğit Can Alper carry a ghostly quality, their creatures disappearing into sparse backdrops. Alper’s drab figures and structures seem to be part of a dilapidated world. And the textures of the material render each component as a temporary apparition.

The motifs in Alper’s work include massive animals and solitary riders, both of and beyond this world. The contraptions adorning his characters are near-Steampunk, or at the very least, a hodgepodge of found materials. In social media posts, the artist opts for describing the paint rather than any specific narrative”.
