Painter Tolga Boztoprak's exhibition "Mülksüz" (Dispossessed) is now open at the Zeytinburnu Culture and Art Center. Speaking at the opening of the exhibition, Boztoprak said: "The exhibition tells the story of people who do not possess any property or treasure but try to reach to the top from scratch." Boztoprak drew attention to the storyline and theatrical features in particular of his artworks. "I usually observe people, especially those who are alone in the crowd. I meditate over the possibilities of their origin. I pay attention to every little detail from their clothing to bags. I put them in my stories and paint them on canvas. I illustrate the adaptation process of people who migrate here from other places. The storyline starts at their departure, leaving the nest and the process of existence." Mehmet Lütfi Şen, the curator of the exhibition, told the media that Boztoprak's work draws audiences to take a closer look at them, as the artist's works reflect our own lives. "If we do not fool ourselves and are honest, we are able to discover that our lives are a little bit hazy and there will be always pain. However, this realization also allows us to engage in artistic dialogue because the only way to contact art is to create it from within ourselves. "Dispossessed," which features 24 of Boztoprak's works, will be open until March 12. Born in Kars in 1970, Tolga Boztoprak stands out with his works influenced by social realism. He usually depicts social corruption and different lifestyles via his observations of everyday life.
When: Until April 12
