Mesut Öztürk was born in Krumovgrad, Bulgaria in 1989. He and his family immigrated to Turkey in the same year. He studied architecture in Istanbul, later on he completed his master degree on History, Theory, Criticism in Architecture at Istanbul Bilgi University. He worked as a part time lecturer in the same university.

While he is experimenting with structural possibilities and the limits of the material clay, he seeks to find ways to translate his contemplations about architectural structures, poetic places, timeless artifacts and the urban formations into ceramic forms. He has been living and working in Paris since 2021.
