Beygu Gokcin – A Turkish Contemporary Artist at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City
From the 03rd to 10th of December 2012 the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City will host a contemporary art exhibition with selected pieces by the talented Turkish artist Beygu Gokcin.
Beygu Gokcin is a multitalented artist, who was born in Izmir, Turkey.
After spending 17 years in Austria, Vienna, he decided to stay and work in Istanbul where he produced a number of international ambitioned art projects.
His art is appreciated by several private art collectors all over the world, ranging from Ankara, Istanbul, Athens, Baku, Munich, Vienna, Paris, Brussels, London, Stockholm, New York, Washington DC and many more.
Beygu Gokcin has also bestowed 2 of his paintings as a gift for US President Barack Obama and his family, presently kept in the US National archive, as well as an inspiring piece of art he gifted to the past prime minister of Greece, Mr. Yorgo Papandreu.
His artworks, which are usually on canvas, reflect his love of life, free spirit and search of harmony. There appears to be no limits to his wish to enrich himself to be part of everything that is this world. His range of experiences and intense interests are reflected in his paintings.
Gokcin’s affection and sensitivity to the environment is evident in his work entitled “Dance of Whales” and the “Sun Dance”. His burning desire is for humankind to wake up and look beyond their immediate borders. His aim to celebrate the multi-dimensions of life, universal ideas and themes make up basic languages of his colourful, abstract and symbolic art while expressing the joys and disappointments of life as well as his unchangeable realities.
He is especially intrigued by systems created by human beings, the mysteries of nature and the universe. He hopes to leave a better world for the next generation, full of love and world peace and his sense of adventure, discovery and responsibility emanates from his lively personality and is one of the driving forces of his motivation and expression.
He hopes that people, who purchase his art works, will appreciate them by sharing his concerns and interests in life.
In addition to the contemporary art exhibition of Beygu Gokcin, his niece, the international prodigy piano star Ayse Deniz will perform at the opening event for the media and VIP clients on the 03rd of December with a piano recital.
