In 1970, Zümrütolu was born in Konya. In 1996, he received his degree from the Fine Arts Faculty of Izmir Dokuz Eylul University. After that, he traveled to France, Belgium, and the Netherlands to continue his schooling and pursue professional courses. His paintings offer a formal approach to the subject and are reminiscent of Physical Abstraction and German Expressionism. Additionally, the artist's work is driven by the strength and forces that are revealed in the fluidity of the images and the use of color. Despite being called the "Turkish Francis Bacon," Zümrütolu's composition and technique differ significantly from those of the Irish artist. The dynamic figures of the artist disappear into the canvas's substance and resurface in fresh forms. On the other hand, the Turkish artist's use of aggressive brushes and chromatic diversity adds a fresh layer of tension and irony to his work. Zümrütolu is a well-known artist who has had shows at foundations and museums all around the world. The artist explores existential themes in his abstract expressionist works and queries the fluid connection between two dissimilar artistic fields. The following three forces can be seen in Zümrütolu's artwork: Vertical movement includes falling or rising, spasming, stretching, opening, hanging, rhythm, and body line; Violence (paint intensity, emotion, sensation, and painting body), and; Dimension (space, space, growth, emptiness, an opening that draws the body in). The artist lives and works in Istanbul, directly targeting the nervous system by "seizing" these forces.

İdil is a Master of Fine Arts graduate of London's Chelsea College of Art and Design. With the arrangement of fragments that repeat like noises, lkin's collages have rhythm and cyclicality. Ilkin investigates the use of the voice as an experimental musical instrument while conducting study on the human body as a musical instrument. Large-scale photo collages by her are primarily inspired by calligraphy, marbling, minimal music, rugs, and tiles. She makes repeated patterns akin to those found in minimalist music or traditional Islamic art. The consuming habits, lifestyle, and economic cycles that force us to participate in them are what define her compositions. She is always thinking about rhythm, repetition, echo, light, and reflection as a result of seeing, observing, believing, obeying, and mimicking. Her use of several planes to organize and define her images enables viewers to read her compositions in terms of both time and place. A dynamic combination of painting, photography, and print is produced by the fluid anamorphic forms flowing in and out of the visual field due to digital interference. İdil İlkin presently resides and works in Istanbul.
