Erol Akyavaş’s Projection Of Life

The forty-plus year artistic output of Erol Akyavaş, who describes his painting as “a projection of life”, is coming to art lovers in an Erol Akyavaş Retrospective at Istanbul Modern.

The exhibition features close to 250 works from oil paintings and drawings to three-dimensional installations and photo manipulations produced by Akyavaş during his career from the 1950’s up to his death in 1999. Akyavaş attracted attention for the original vision he forged combining modern art and the traditional arts. The exhibition can be visited through August 25.
