Sedef Gali researches different socio-cultural eras and mainly focuses on portraits. Her  work is a contrasting celebration of the suppressed emotions of human beings and how it  is sugar coated within society through the use of colors and illusions. Main subjects of her  work consist of emotional layers & expressions, gender issues, self love, and the chaotic  grime of metropolitan cities and society. Gali’s major source of inspiration is people’s emotions, oppressions and traumas shaping fears and how they are reflected through  facial expressions & reactions. Her work always transforms through her own emotional  challenges and self analysis, her recent abstract works are a part of her new series “Love  Letters”.  

The main technique Gali uses is acrylic and oil on canvas, but all her works include  iridescent tricks and illusions supported with industrial oils, spray paint, nail polish,  mediums, alcohol and self made powdered pigments.
