Mustafa Hulusi (born 1971) is a London based conceptual artist who uses a diverse set of mediums for his work, such as painting, photography, video and installation. Being of Cypriot-Turkish origin Hulusi explores his dislocated cultural background in his work which deals with hybrid identities. For his contribution to Sedition he has constructed video works that fuse hyper-abstract elements with realist imagery. His Eastern Mediterranean heritage informs his work and he often uses the flora and fauna of Cyprus. Influenced both by op art and 1970s photo-realism, his work is distinctively eye-catching often incorporating simultaneous themes of abstraction and figuration. Hulusi graduated from Goldsmiths College and later went on to study photography at the Royal College of Art. His works have been exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery, the Venice Biennnale and the Whitechapel Gallery and is part of the permanent collection of the Tate Modern, London. Hulusi's solo exhibition The Golden Age was on view at Max Wigram Gallery, London, in 2013.
