Alican Leblebici is known for his hyperrealist portraits and self-portraits, he discusses the identity problem over the body. The reason behind artist’s tendency to create self-portraits is to discover the footprints of his own identity. Leblebici describes his inspirations as ‘I am open to every image that I run across and I encounter. I make an effort to keep my receivers open and I am trying to record everything. The people and the stories around me is the most important source that I constantly fed. ‘
