Born and raised in Istanbul, Suzan originally studied translation at University of Graz in Austria before turning to art after moving to the United States. An avid traveler, Batu brings varied cultural elements together in her works. Her artwork is often a response to the happenings of the world, in an attempt to bring beauty into the most perilous situations. Through fluid abstraction, Batu’s work exudes hope and positive energy.
Suzan's work is inspired by famed artists Roy Lichtenstein and Henri Matisse.
