Artistic Perspective
Yılmaz created lasting effects on the audience with his works by focusing on the subjective nature of art. She produces works based on body positivity, acceptance or criticism. She uses chubby figures in the context of body positivity to challenge beauty standards other than the “ideal” figures imposed by society. Subjects such as audience, exclusion, identity, humor and irony, equality and representation are the subjects he deals with in his works.
Yılmaz continues his work as a painter and writer.
