As one of the finest retouchers we’ve seen so far, Mehmet Geren chose art icons to express his creative universe and humour. As you well know, he’s not the first one, but his work is certainly to be ranked for his sophistication. His repertoire covers artistic and pop references, among others, as Vincent van Gogh, Mona Lisa, Frida Kahlo and The Birth of Venus, Academic art masterpieces, characters from Trainspotting, The Exorcist or Léon: The Professional, and the irreverent Breakdancing Jesus by Cosmo Sarson.

In 2010, he was awarded the IPA Editorial: Personality Honourable Mention Award and has worked with many clients, magazines, beauty adverts and photographers such as Femelle Campaign, Gucci and Calvin Klein, just to name a few.
