This is the first time I’m writing a post which is expressing something more than art, more than artworks and nothing to do with the word “contemporary”. Because a daughters love for her father has always been the most passionate love story all throughout history. This is about three daughters celebrating their deceased fathers birthday with art, celebrating their love for him with friends, for other friends. Happy Birthday Fikret Otyam!

Fulya Sanat is hosting a group show on the 21st of December in memory of Fikret Otyam.

Deceased artist; photographer, painter and writer Fikret Otyam passed away last year in August leaving behind a very vast archive of books, photographs and paintings. In memory of the artist on his 90th birthday, 45 contemporary artists will be showing their printed works. This exhibition was brought to life by his daughters; Elvan Baransel, İrep Otyam Bilgiç and Döne Otyam. The exhibition was supported by the Beşiktaş Municipality and many many artist friends.
