Mehmet Guleryuz - Contemporary Istanbul Art Fair:

Mehmet Guleryuz, born in 1938,  has been graduated from Istanbul Fine Arts Academy from Painting Department. In his early stages he studied theatre in Haldun Dormen Theater, directed some plays, went to Paris to study Painting and Lithography, taught in his former Art School and resigned to live in New York from 1980 to 1984 where he sculpted and prepared prints in Brussels before returning to Istanbul in 1985. Since then he was teaching in Bilsak where he published "Kalin" an art magazine and he also exhibited his works of the previous 25 years in the meantime. He anticipated in many projects including "Counter Wild" Series in Sheraton Hotel, Ankara, 7 paintings in Polat Renaissance Hotel and then became president of IAA Turkey and a member of the World IAA executive committee between 2002-2005.
I really like his brush and palette strokes and admired his choice of colors:
