Hamza Kırbaş's work is shaped as a communication model between space, time and the audience. He takes the subjects covered in his works from daily life and aims to establish a link between the past, the future and the present. In particular, he transforms the moment he lives into images by observing. Thoughts that turn into images emerge as a phenomenon in the perceptual consciousness of the viewer in time and space.
The artist, who creates a communication environment with the images he has created, aims for the viewer to find and question the moment he lives in these images. The subjects he deals with in his works focus on events that occur on a global scale and the effects of these events on our lives.
Having an interdisciplinary approach in his artistic practice, the artist uses many techniques such as 3D visuals, 3D animations, sculptures, installations, site-specific installations, and augmented reality in his works.
His works were exhibited on many important national and international platforms and received awards.
