A Turkish Illustrator: Selcuk Demirel Exhibition

Hi everybody!!

Today, I visited three exhibitions which are very well and sophisticated separately.

First of all, I want to talk about an amazing drawer who is Selçuk Demirel. He is a worldwide known person. He is actually Turkish, but he has worked in France for many years. He had education in Ankara. Firstly, he started to study architecture in METU in Ankara. After that, he didn’t finish his education there, then he moved to France. In Ankara, he drew in many magazines and newspapers. After he went to France, his works were published in  French, Sweden and Holland media organs. He has a lot of works included book illustrations, magazines, book cover designs, kid books, postcards and posters. He worked for Turkish broadcastings like Cumhuriyet, Milliyet, Yeni Yüzyıl, Kitap-lik P, French broadcastings included Le Monde, Le Monde Diplomatique, Le Nouvel Observateur and American publications which are The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Jaurnal, The Boston Globe, Business Week and SellingPower.

His works includes some ridicule and he is a really mindful illustrator. He gives some meaningful social and politic messages in a roundabout way. By the way, really he stole my heart :))  Because I heard about that he is John Berger’s best friend. Berger mentioned about him as proud in some articles. He is one of my favorite authors. Especially, I really liked a book ‘ways of seeing” which talks about photography.

Let’s take a look some of Selçuk Demirel’s works from the exhibition;
