An exhibition of Ebru art, the Turkish art of paper marbling, by Hayrettin Kozanoglu.


The Turkish art of marbling: Ebru is performed using aqueous natural pigments mixed with ox-gall in a rectangular trough filled with thickened water, traditionally prepared using gum-tragacanth. Colours are sprinkled using brushes made of rose stalks and horsehair on the surface of the thickened water in the trough. The floating pattern is taken off on paper after being reshaped and retouched using pins, needles and combs.  

Ebru is more than just an art form, it is the gathered knowledge, history and mysticism of a deep artistic and cultural journey. Taking its starting point in the traditional craftsmanship of Ebru, Hayrettin Kozanoglu manages to translate the Ebru of past times into a present day contemporary art practice. 

Starting his artistic journey in 2000, Kozanoglu only had his first Ebru lesson in 2009. Subsequently mastering the traditional techniques he started creating his own more experimental style within Ebru marbling. Now, he continues to teach at Yunus Emre Institute and offer workshops in Ebru art in both traditional and modern styles from his London studio  

With this exhibition, Kozanoglu, despite being very talented in classic Ebru Art, has embarked on a new challenging journey of experimentation. He is bringing the Ebru Art form out of its traditions, introducing it to a new wider audience.
