About a year ago I discovered this artist workshop. His name is Başir Kasumov and he was keen to point out that he had studied at a famous Art Academy in Moscow and as you can see he proudly shows off his Diploma in one of the photos.
I was more impressed by the paintings than the diploma though as he has a really original style and is obviously very talented. If you are in Antalya and want to check them out yourself he is situated very close to Hadrians Gate inside Kaleiçi.
The reason it has taken so long to post the photos is because I was going to go back with a Turkish friend to interview him but I have yet to get around to that. Maybe one day, who knows. In the meantime check out his work below.
