SCULPTOR / ARTIST
Rana and Berna Canok were born in İstanbul in 1972. They graduated from The Fine Arts Faculty of Mimar Sinan University, Textile & Sculpture Departments. The Canoks created their personal brand in 1994 and for the last 23 years, they have been working on their art career.
Through their collections, they have proved their abilities in building relations amongst the concepts, attributing visual meanings and symbols to this, expressing the main message by using a visual language and aesthetic availability in every field.
The Canok sisters direct their designs with the motto of "The form is the element that empowers the collection." and they foreground the power in the core of the energy for the colour integrity. They also put design and visual art together.
They aim to make art lovers think through the 3D designs of their painting and sculpture combinations.
