ART - Paintings from Cafe Olive -

Mostly the diversity of colours, village life, the Aegean nature with its sunlight and landscapes and the Mediterranean Aegean view of life were the inspirations for those artworks.

With the admire for Paul CÚzanne, who lived in the Provence and catched the beauty of village life, those pictures are following the "CÚzannism", like in 1912, when CÚzanne created by the invention of his new style the era of "CÚzannism". A lot of painters, also known ones tried to copy his painting style. Also Picasso and George Braque were in their beginnings inspired by CÚzanne.

Looking carefully at the following pictures, those basically "Cézannism - reproductions" but also early Picasso inspired oil paintings are carrying a kind of individual touch.

If You are interested in seeing those pictures, we are happy to welcome You at the Café Olive Gallery in Akkoy, where all those pictures have been painted.
