A painting is artificial; two dimensional surfaces require pure belief in spiritual values. It opens a door to the ideal. Nature is not comprehensible – neither is a good artwork, because it resembles nature. The in-comprehensiveness of nature is the reason why all questions and communications start. Mustafa believes that we do not have any plausible answer to what life is, but we cannot stop thinking and talking about it. A good art work can only endeavour to reach the answer. His work grows out of these impulses: a desire to manifest in the world the innards of his imagination, a way to live and discover fantasy.
His work draws upon his own surroundings, often in a playful manner. By appropriating visually loaded imagery from his surroundings and transforming them into new works that can be experienced spatially and temporally, he creates a self-derived environment from images loaded in the memory to construct a new reality parallel to the original. His images are unified as a whole but enclosed, unlimited and so, undefined. This ambiguity of structure requires active perception, which originates from the viewer`s own desire. It’s a playful archeology of the soul, which uncovers the world within him and the one he lives in. He plays with space and multiple perspectives, creating a visual story that is narrative and vibrant, yet ambiguous.
