Ali Yanya MA. RCA.  Born Istanbul
In a recent unpretentious statement, he says:

At the moment I am working on group compositions with shadowy, standing figures against unrecognisable spaces. The main idea behind these images is to draw attention to the transient nature of human existence. Without being too narrative my intention is to achieve a good balance between form and content

Ali took a fine arts degree at Marmara University and went on to teach at Mimar Sinan University for two years and later in 1996 at Kensington & Chelsea College of Art.
Conceiving an ambition to master the art of printmaking he won a Turkish government overseas study scholarship and secured a place at the RCA (Royal College of Art) where he gained an MA with Distinction (his talent being singled out by Peter Blake)
