Cansu Sönmez was born in 1991 in Istanbul. She started her education in 2009 and graduated from Marmara University Atatürk Education Faculty Painting Department in 2013. Since 2013, she has been working on the subject of dystopia, photographing and videotaping productions in the lifeless mannequin factory. She made productions in various techniques related to her subject.
In her recent works, she criticizes the concrete-made dystopian world. She wants to create works about the relationship between city and nature with the dystopia itself, as dull and soulless concrete as it is. With the opportunity provided by interdisciplinary study, she examined the issue with a variety ranging from street art to kinetic art.
