Here you can see me drawing a oneline-self-portrait with a canvas and marker on the “Pont des Arts” in Paris. I called it "Don't be silent about what is happening now". It illustrates my longing for honest communication in a time whose characteristics of fear and silence stirs me anew each and every day.
During my weekend trip to Paris, I made a detour to the artists' district of Montmartre in order to realize my lifelong dream on the spot: painting, live – with the thrill of failing in public. But it was not so. The painting was sold to a viewer immediately after its completion!
Women are the plenitude of human emotion and the vessel of every creation in this world. From their loving womb grows and thrives love and future of this miracle called earth.

Because women are everything, as mother nature is!
Instead of just staying at home during corona lockdown, I decided to get in action and brought my idea and concept "Lockdown? Love Up!" to life. Friends and fans of my work were able to watch me LIVE at work by passing by the window of a coffee house (Café Berio) and online via Instagram and Facebook for an entire week. At the end I finished seven artworks in only seven days.

Alasalvaroglu produced a clip about his drawing art in 2015. In front of the webcam, a real work of art is created on a piece of paper on his chest in just four minutes. Fatih brings a drawing to life with just one continuous line. The picture grows impressively in the video without him having a direct view onto the paper. It comes into being virtually "overhead". The clip had more than half a million clicks within just a few days and sparked his career as an artist.
