My Highlights from ArtInternational 2014
The ArtInternational fair in Istanbul, only celebrating its 2nd year, has become a new destination for art lovers. The young Turkish artists meet international collectors, and international galleries meet the Turkish public. My selection highlights a combination of both young Turkish artists and established international leaders. The works are challenging; either in the art-making process, or in the effect they have on the viewer. Most of the artists are already a part of the Elgiz Collection, while the rest is on the “must-have” list! My Selection:
Cannot forget the first time I saw the series—it is even more breathtaking now than ever!
I’m sure somebody will take her home, she is so beautiful!
Working with natural tropical beetles, the artist takes the viewer into another dimension where we are impressed with how the body, the blood, and the death is preserved in such an artwork.
Emotionally provocative and sexually challenging works. He became a ‘must-have,’ in not only Turkey but now also international leading collections.
I find this young artist and his technique very pleasant. He found his place in the art world in a short time and is very much appreciated by the young collectors.
Almond's full moon photograph series is taken after long exposure under the moonlight only. The spectator generally assumes it is taken by flashlight.
