The purpose of this thesis is to suggest a reading of my paintings, which are produced in two years time period. This reading has been shaped considering the state and possible transformation of individuals cohabiting with the high-tech world in the cyber age. The first part of the study describes the ideas related to the today’s high-tech world that inspired me throughout my art practice. The second part will be based on describing and analyzing the development process, the elements of my paintings, and emergence of figures in them as Crossbreeds. The third part will be based on analyzing the artworks of artists who have similar concerns and use different methods in order to express the possible relations of distinct realities. The paper will elaborate on the notion of Crossbreed, which is composed of sign and gesture, as a symbolic representation of fictional characters living in the cyber age.
