Description +-

Çevikcan's work Migration and Hunger explores the correlation between the two. Where food insecurity can both be the primary and secondary cause for seeking refuge, the artist delineates the struggle through emotive means. The controlled brushstrokes carefully portray the mass of lives that this coupling issue impacts; with the range of ages expanding on this breadth. The viewer is positioned outside of the struggle as a figure able to provide food. This sparks a necessary questioning of agency.

"Art is like the sun illuminating the universe…it is the most important phenomenon that adds value and educates the soul"-Emel Çevikcan

Emel Çevikcan reflects on the importance of nature and humanity through the symbiotic fluidity of watercolour and their controlled application of it. The harmony of subject and composition in the paintings is very important. The contradictions that people experience and the conversations that are sometimes hidden in their silence inspire the artist's work. Çevikcan also emphasises the hidden experiences within different communities. The artist compares their artwork to the secret garden's of individuals where the flowers are symbolic of their strength; persisting and flowering season after season. The artist actively participates in a variety of art and culture events abroad and within Turkey. At the the 2021 America Art Awards, they made an important grade with their work titled "Pandemic Heroes" in the Watercolour Figure category.

Donation +-

Based on our agreement with the artist, 15% of the pre-VAT price excluding frames will be donated to support The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
