A day in the life of Bedri Baykam

Born in Ankara in 1957, artist Bedri Baykam has crammed plenty into the past 52 years. Considered a child prodigy, he was creating remarkable work from the age of two and held his first international exhibitions at six. He is currently one of Turkey's most famous living artists, and concentrates on the New Expressionism movement, multi-media and photo-painting work. Baykam is also one of the country's most prolific political commentators. In addition to his 97 one-man shows, he is the author of 18 books, including 'The Bone and Monkeys' Right to Paint'. SHOP's Emma Cheevers joins the artist, activist, writer and football expert for a less-than-average day
