merve ünsal is a visual artist who lives and works in Istanbul.

She has shown her work in a variety of contexts across the world, most often through artist-driven initiatives in Cairo, Beirut, New Delhi, Toronto; she has been supported by the Delfina Foundation (London), Praksis (Oslo), Fogo Island Arts, Art Metropole (Toronto), University of Delaware (Lewes), and SAHA Studio (Istanbul) to participate in artist residencies.
