I am Kahraman Marangoz, a Belgium citizen born in nineteen seventy seven. The last of five children from a coalminers family. At the age of fourteen i went to the art school and followed visual arts. That was a time where i learned a lot about art as well as life. Belgium was a country that stood open for new idea’s and tolerated western value’s through the seculair state structure.
I am glad to be a part of the western values where i stay behind, for me they are branches that grow into the future. That western world had a certain dynamic but that was not the only dynamic at the time.
Computers, satellites, mobile phones and the internet also created a dynamic. In the period where i was painting landscapes, i found that advanced technology was something special and that i had to do something with it, not let it go bye like it was nothing. I understood that it had an impact on the world and that it was very new and unseen in the timeline.
