Erol Akyavas


The exhibition Erol Akyavaş – Retrospective, organized by Istanbul Modern presents a comprehensive inventory of the artist’s oeuvre that extends over half a century from the 1950s to the late 1990s. The exhibition brings together in great diversity the unique synthesis Akyavaş developed between the artistic and cultural worlds of the East and the West, his perspectival and architectural arrangements on the canvas that passed through many transformations in time, his subconscious explorations that focused on the human figure and his interaction in his late period with the various cultures of the world.
