According to the information provided by the Press and Public Relations Directorate of Near East University, the artist Osman Atila Keten, who synthesizes the cipher and minimal in his works for the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, said; “However, in this way, the art that gained its own form away from the consumable functionality and started to carry the superiority of the nonobjective feeling reveals a real-world order, a new philosophy of life.”
The artist states that he pursues this because art is a mysterious language and is true only to the extent that it can touch the sense of existence in man’s roots and meet his deep spiritual need. The personal exhibition of artist Osman Atila Keten will meet art lovers on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at 09:30.
