About the artwork

An inspiring location owing to its geographical situation at the crossroads of civilisations, Istanbul is famous for its Oriental and Western influences, for its contrasts between tradition and modernity and its grandiose architecture inherited from the Ottoman and Byzantine empires. Its old streets, panoramic views over the Bosphorus, its famous Blue Mosque and Saint Sophia Cathedral are not however the subjects that interest Yener Torun, who prefers to sublimate less frequented parts of his hometown, by wandering through industrial and residential areas. The results are entrancingly beautiful, dominated by repetitive geometric themes, flamboyant and saturated colours, and work on shadows that magnifies the fa?ades of the Turkish capital. Yener Torun hopes to change the perception that people have of his country by presenting a modern, bright, dynamic and colourful Istanbul for all to see. His disparate influences oscillate between the abstract artworks of the Minimalist Piet Mondrian, those of American painter Frank Stella, the inventor of geometrically cut canvases taking the shape of Middle Eastern cities, or the methodical arrangements of the videogame Tetris.
