Writing titled: ‘365 hours in a day’
Lot’s of questions! If you were an alien scientist would you have the opportunity to leave planet earth? or would you discover what’s already here with us? like culture, nature or travel for example…How much can we discover in a closed room? Can you then reveal what’s not already said? Am I questioning what already exists or are you saying what’s already been said before? Do we repeat ourselves but in a different body? And what about a sub culture that exists and not many people know about. Is that depressing, is it beautiful or are tribes repeating a historical past? I have no clues but watch. But do I learn anything new. And why is the new material so important?

Trapt is about a language that exists between drag queens where we all want to look like transexual Amanda
. Lapore is a genius queen and her looks are divine.
Trapt is a unique oil painting that looks at the role of a face, a portrait, a famous figure and how it was painted without any feelings towards a reaction to our faces’s structural bones, hair, teeth, nose and ears. Although the painting looks very serious, there are boundaries between it’s
humorous take on presentation, abstraction and how paint is applied directly from oil tube.

Ice (Ismail) Erbil is a contemporary artist based in London working with painting, sculpture and fashion. Turkish-born and raised in both Germany and London Ice works in fashion design in the category of education at London College of Fashion Short Courses and specialises in Research, Design and Draping. He holds a BA from Central Saint Martins and diplomas from London College of Fashion. Ice (Ismail) Erbil showed his debut collection in New York.

He has also tutored at Northbrook College in West Sussex and Southampton Solent University in Southampton (UK).
Ice is based in his art and design studio in East London and explores new art and fashion directions within his practice including innovative pattern cutting, collage, sculpture and oil painting. Current areas of interest are titled ‘Space Travel’ and ‘Our Giant Sea’ by the artist and also reference historical fashion designers and their influence on identity. Discovering drapery and using a visual language extending into ideas surrounding ‘bones, flowers and UFO’s’ allows Ice to approach the ‘everyday’ from his own unique perspective. He is currently presenting a series of fifty new small works on his web-site as well as draping a new menswear collection with his collaborative art partner and flatmate under the collaborative name ‘Beyond Duality’.
Directions beginning in the areas of Surrealism, fabric and queer art constitute some of the main ingredients of his image-making both as an artist and a fashion designer.
