Rasim Aksan

September 19, 2014 – October 18, 2014

Galerist, Meşrutiyet Caddesi No. 67/1, Tepebaşı, Beyoğlu

One of Turkey’s most prominent hyperrealist painters, Rasim Aksan presents his latest large-scale colour paintings and black-and-white drawings which explore the ‘selfie’ culture. As a current phenomenon, selfies allow people to indulge in their narcissistic (narcissus) sides. One of the most popular ways to upload a photo on social media, it allows everyone to feel important and beautiful. Aksan unmasks the demand for this stamp of approval from his unique point of view.
