Coplu's distinct style of painting is characterized by use of vibrant colours and love, influenced by his mother who was a weaver, while depicting themes of family and togetherness. His hopeful and emotive series of paintings serve as constant reminders of the power of love and familial bonds. Using recurring motives such as heart-shaped trees, clouds, and human figures to encapsulate love, dream, and hope, Coplu has been captivating viewers of all ages for decades.
The fervent artist has recently started his series of sculptural works where he transforms the two-dimensional figures in his paintings into palpable three-dimensional sculptures that are widely admired. This breakthrough took him many years in the making as he experimented with different forms, textures, and colours. The result is a series of sculptural works which are brightly coloured, glossy, and instantly loved by viewers. One of Coplu's sculptures, titled "Nature of Love" has been collected by Changi Airport and is on display in the arrival hall of Terminal 4. The artist has exhibited all over Asia, Europe, and North America.
