"Life" by Varol Topaç

Sculptor Varol Topaç, Deputy Director of the Izmir Painting and Sculpture Museum of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, emphasizes sustainability with this work and transforms waste materials into works of art. The work offers visitors an interactive experience with its kinetic design and reflects the impact of natural disasters on human life.
The artistic consultancy of Dr. Nabat Garakhanova, CEO of Mezo Digital Art, Varol Topaç's work Yaşam symbolizes human endurance, hope and solidarity with its hard material. The main theme of the sculpture emphasizes the impact of natural disasters on human life and the power of humanity to cope with such disasters. The iron material represents durability, while the forms of the sculpture symbolize the will to overcome various challenges and take a step forward. The design of the sculpture is characterized by fluid lines that reflect movement and dynamism. The form of the sculpture represents the strength of the community and the importance of working together.
