About the Artist: Hülya Özdemir is an artist born in Istanbul, Turkey, (1972) who creates beautiful images halfway between art and illustration, with watercolors. She is a perfectionist colour hunter. Her paintings are timeless. Her portraits do not remain imprisoned in a single statement, their gazes are changing, just like us. One day in the same picture is sad, another day is possible to see a happy face. Flowers, plants, animals often create wonderful patterns and textures; sometimes minimalist, sometimes with strong references to Art Nouveau and in particular to Gustav Klimt.
