is a Turkish sculptor. He is one of the major sculptors in modern Turkey. Called the "Anatolian Michaelangelo" he was born in southern Turkey and studied sculpture in England, Italy and Germany, where he lived and worked for many years. Aksoy´s public sculpture includes a massive marble "Memorial to the Deserter" in Germany in honor of those who refuse to fight in unjust wars. The figure in this memorial is carved in negative relief, a technique that Aksoy employed in later work. His sculptures often contain sensual figurative elements, but he is strongly rooted in a modernist sensiblity with strong conceptual and abstract elements in his work. He works primarily in stone but also incorporates other material, fusing metal or differing stones in a single sculpture. He presently resides and works in a studio of his own dramatic design on the outskirts of Istanbul.
