Painting exhibitions at Near East University

By Ahmet Abdulaziz...

The Near East University organised three painting exhibitions last week. These exhibitions are scheduled to continue to the end of the month.

The first exhibition consists of 26 artworks of 10 Albanian artists.

The second exhibition includes 41 artworks of 9 artists from Kazakhstan.

The third ongoing exhibition has put on display 36 artworks of 8 artists from Kyrgyzstan.

All of the artworks have been specially produced by the artists to be part of the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts.

The 26 paintings by 10 Albanian artists  reveal the extraordinary vision of the artists not only through strong and contrasting colours over the representational or realistic values retained by impressionism but also through abstract figures emphasizing the meaning behind the forms and colours.

The exhibition was inaugurated by  Dr. Faiz Sucuoğlu, the Minister of Labour and Social Security..

Speaking on behalf of the Albanian artists, Parid Dule expressed their happiness of being hosted in Cyprus. “I would like to express our gratitude for providing us with the opportunity to arrange and share this exhibition with you. We have come to Cyprus for the first time. We are very happy to be here and leave our marks via our art. That’s why we will never forget it. We thank you for inviting us here and for your interest and hospitality”.

The second exhibition put on display 41 artworks of Kazakhstan artists. In general they reveal Kazakh culture, in addition to abstract and philosophical expressions.

Speaking on behalf of the Kazakh artists, Umurali Ismailov stated that   the voice, culture and art of the Turkic people is beginning to be heard internationally through the Near East University. On behalf of the Kazakh artists, he expressed great gratitude to Dr. Suat Günsel for enabling them to take part in such an important project.
