OJ ART SPACE is happy to present Nazim Unal Yilmaz‘s solo exhibition ‘Watermelon Show’
“If you are a drawing room artist, for drawing rooms, for youth groups, for convents, for Ambassadors, for movie houses, how do you report to work?… dressed, you can bet!… in some handsome getup!… naturally! In popular attire!.. you have to!… but if you are of a lyrical nature!…born a poet!…truly lyric!… then, that will no longer do!… there are no costumes to fit your nature!… nerves exposed, you must rush forward, introduce yourself !… your nerves hanging out!.. your own!… not somebody else’s!… not just naked!… to the quick!… more than stripped!… your ego standing forth!… rashly!… for all to see!”*
Nazım Ünal Yilmaz’s solo painting exhibition opens its doors on Friday, May 11th. The exhibition can be seen at OJ Art Space until 3 June 2018.
