Devrim Arbil, poet of painting. Nature is his passion. The rhythm and movement of life has always stirred me up. Similar but mismatched iterations and dilemmas lead him to question his raison d’être.
The cultural heritage of Anatolia has always influenced his perspective. Intercultural relations and the “Differences in Anatolian Life” series became indispensable topics of their time.
With its huge historical site and nature, Istanbul is one of his interests, the city where he lived for 60 years. They surround the city with the magic of vibrations. Sometimes he does it with a bird’s eye view, sometimes with a double view. Best of all, it does this by making you feel the music of the sounds of the birds’ wings and the rhythm of their movements. Erbil’s art philosophy aims to make art more accessible, particularly by including it in everyday life in today’s Turkey.
