贝德利·拉赫米·尤博奥卢1911年出生于特拉布宗，在同一城市完成中等教育，画家泽基·科卡米米在那里教他艺术。在科卡梅米的支持下，他于1929年进入伊斯坦布尔美术学院学习，并在纳兹米·齐亚·居兰和布拉希姆·切尔的指导下学习。1932年，他去巴黎，在安德烈·洛特（1885-1962）的工作室学习了一年。随后他回到土耳其，并于1934年加入D集团，并参加了该集团的一次展览。他在1939年举办的第一届国家画展和雕塑展上获得一等奖，并在第四届画展上获得二等奖，在第三十三届画展上获得一等奖。他在圣保罗双年展上获得了一枚金牌，D组是1933年由6位朋友创立的，其中5位是画家，1位是雕塑家（努鲁拉·塞马尔·伯克、泽基·法伊克·泽尔、埃利夫·纳奇、塞马尔·托卢、阿比丁·迪诺和祖赫蒂多卢）。随后，Turgut Zaim、Bedri Rahmi Eyübo湫lu、Eren Eyübo湫lu、EşrefÜren、Arif Kaptan、Halil Dikmen、Sabri Berkel、Salih Urallı、HakkıAnlı、Fahrünnisa Zeid、Nusret Suman和Zeki Kocamemi加入了该小组。这一群体一直活跃到1951年，代表了这一时期年轻艺术家的一代，在视觉艺术中发挥了重要作用。之所以选择D组，是因为字母D是拉丁字母表中的第四个字母，这是在土耳其成立的第四个艺术家组。该小组的大多数成员都曾在巴黎学习，并受到在巴黎工作的艺术家的影响。回国后，他们反对1914年那一代的印象派风格，而是采用立体派、结构主义风格，将绘画元素分割开来，创造出更加坚实和清晰的形式。这个团体认为，一个西化国家的艺术必须是新的；。
Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu was born in Trabzon in 1911 and completed his secondary education in the same city, where he was taught art by the painter Zeki Kocamemi. With Kocamemi's support he enrolled at Istanbul Academy of Fine Arts in 1929, and there studied under Nazmi Ziya Güran and İbrahim Çallı. In 1932 he went to Paris and spent a year studying at the studio of Andre Lhote (1885-1962). He then returned to Turkey and in 1934 joined the D Group and participated in an exhibition by the group. He won first prize at the first State Exhibition of Painting and Sculpture held in 1939, and went on to win second prize at the fourth exhibition, and first prize at the 33rd exhibition. He won a gold medal at the Sao Paulo Biennale.The D Group was founded in 1933 by six friends, five of them painters and one a sculptor (Nurullah Cemal Berk, Zeki Faik İzer, Elif Naci, Cemal Tollu, Abidin Dino and Zühtü Müridoğlu). Subsequently the group was joined by Turgut Zaim, Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu, Eren Eyüboğlu, Eşref Üren, Arif Kaptan, Halil Dikmen, Sabri Berkel, Salih Urallı, Hakkı Anlı, Fahrünnisa Zeid, Nusret Suman and Zeki Kocamemi. The group remained active until 1951, representing the generation of young artists of the period and played an influential role in the visual arts. The name D Group was chosen because the letter 'd' is the fourth letter in the Latin alphabet and this was the fourth group of artists to be established in Turkey. Most of the group's members had studied in Paris and were influenced by the artists under whom they worked there. Upon their return home they opposed the impressionist style of the 1914 Generation, instead adopting a cubist, structuralist style, fragmenting the elements of their paintings to create more solid and sharply defined forms. This group argued that the art of a westernizing country had to be 'new'.
