Mahir Duman

Mahir Duman is a visual artist and VJ based in Berlin, presenting live performances, interactive installations, and projection mapping in various European countries, especially for concerts, music- and art festivals, clubs, and art galleries.

He was born in Ordu, Turkey, and lived in Istanbul for many years. In 2011 he moved to Berlin and expanded his life and work as an artist.

He produces videos, short films, music clips, and lots of other media sets, mixed and synchronized with sound and the rhythm of action. He describes his imagery as unrealistic and surreal, that question human perception and the interplay between subjects.

Mahir defines music as the scenario of a visual show and aims to create a new perspective, a relationship between humanity and the universe, to reach the human subconscious and feelings by playing light, color, and images.

He believes that art enables us to find and lose ourselves simultaneously and inspires people’s awareness of unconscious and conscious states of life.
