Photographer's Note

This is the famous turkish painter İbrahim Balaban. I captured him in his summer house in Sile, studying his latest paint.
He is almost 92 and is the most famous naive painter of Turkey.
He learned art of painting from the famous turkish poet Nazım Hikmet when both were been jailed in Bursa in the year 1937. He still is using the techniques he learned from Hikmet.
On WS you can see the scetch of one of his next paintings.

Bu kişi ünlü ressam İbrahim Balaban. Onun bu resmini Şiledeki yalzık evinde çalışırken çektim.
Balaban doksanını geride bıraktı ama hala büyük bir keyifle şövalesinin başına geçip çalışıyor.
Burada da yeni resimlerinden biri ile.
Balaban resim sanatını, 1937 de Nazım Hikmetle Bursa cezaevinde aynı koğuşu paylaştıklarında Nazımdan öğrenmiş.
WS de onun yeni resimlerinden birinin eskizi var.
