Mustafa Hulusi works across a diverse range of media, including sculpture, photography, film, and installation. Using his native Cyprus as inspiration for much of his work, Hulusi draws imagery from the country’s endemic flora and fauna, juxtaposing these natural forms with abstract motifs, often making references to op art and Islamic art, pop culture and advertising. Hulusi is interested in how different visual languages shape our perception. He established his reputation with “guerrilla” campaigns in which he plastered London neighbourhoods with leaflets, posters, and original large-scale works. Hulusi is a British artist, currently living and working in London, UK.
