Though Deniz Ercelebi varies the subjects of her illustrations, there’s an underlying cabaret influence found throughout most of her creations. The frilly masks and hats, the provocative dresses and the porcelain complexions of her females may all be attributed to stylistic choices, but it would appear that Ercelebi has at least a mild interest in night life theatre and her images definitely benefit from these visually stunning elements.

Deniz Ercelebi is currently based in Richmond, Virginia, and explains that she uses, “acrylics, watercolor, ink, pen, pastels and pencil," to render her images before, "finish[ing] the drawings digitally.” This would explain the eclectic styles found within Ercelebi’s provocative portfolio. Each image is so varied, in fact, that they may fool viewers into thinking they were made by entirely different artists who all shared a love for female performers.
