His works have been exhibited at Mamut Art Project in 2013. He participated in the exhibition “Ev” in 2017 within the scope of 15th Istanbul Biennial Neighbouring Events along with various solo and group exhibitions in İzmir, İstanbul and Ankara. His first solo exhibition “Memorabilia” took place at Rem Art Space in 2018 and his solo exhibition “swipe up” took place in Istanbul at Martch Art Project in 2021. The artist lives and works in İzmir. Can İncekara, transforming the memory of casual objects, it reveals the feeling of social memory with images that set out from personal memory. It does not only present the feeling of longing that nostalgia arouses in the individual in a melancholic and sad frame, but also ironically reflects the absurdity of being stuck in the past and not being able to catch it. With the watercolor technique, he shows the images in detail, referring to the fluidity of memory. Patterns and objects with personal experience arouse a feeling in the collective and turn into a common memory
