Horasan: When The Time Comes
The exhibition will present new works on canvas alongside collage and video work by one of Turkey’s seminal portrait artists. Mustafa Horasan (known as ‘Horasan’) graduated from Marmara University’s Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Graphics in 1986. His background in design and graphics has influenced his artistic style, working across a wide range of media, from oil and pastel to drawing and print. His colourful and often collage-style works are iconic for their exploration of both physiological and psychological space, drawing on the grotesque, on Pop culture influences and real life. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the IMKB Arts Competition, Mimar Sinan University New Inclinations Award, Esbank Yunus Emre Painting Competition and State Paint Exhibition. He will have solo shows in May 2014 at Pi Artworks London in the UK and in September 2014 at the Yallay Center in Hong Kong. Horasan’s work can be found in international private and public collections, including those of Istanbul Modern, Turkey and the Sharjah Art Museum, UAE.
