Before we became housemates, we had no idea that we both had a long-lasting passion for illustration. Upon this realization, night-long conversations about the art of illustration became inevitable. When we decided to put more illustrations on the walls of our home but had difficulty in obtaining artworks from our favorite artists we asked ourselves: “How can we access these illustrations?” The second we asked this question, a portal opened to the universe of fam°.
What began as an attempt to open a digital gallery soon evolved into an agency that supports artists via various mediums. fam° is now an illustration and animation agency that represents artists from Turkey. fam°s online gallery, famstore°, continues to bring out the diversity of the local illustration scene. Besides making illustrations of local artists available, fam° encourages creative encounters by providing digital and physical areas of interaction such as exhibitions and workshops.

Pulse exhibition brings together limited edition fine artworks and original pieces of 18 fam° artists. fam°s newest exhibition is named after the token of life, pulse. Through fragmented body parts, transgressive forms or hidden souls, every artist presents a different approach to the significance of a living body. In a time where the philosophical base of artistic creation is becoming more and more fluid, artists once again direct our attention to the body, the only tangible and relevant factor of our reality.
STOP Exhibition was designed as a relaxing opportunity within a collective exhibition space. During İstanbul Arts and Comic Festival each participating artist/collective were given a space within an old historic building. Thinking that these type of events tend to tire its visitors, we turned our space into a living room where you can stop and relax for a moment. We even had an old TV, where we displayed some animations.
