Hayati Misman

Who is Hayati Misman?

Hayati Misman, who stands out by painting the forms of his own nature rather than nature, is one of Turkey’s leading painters in printmaking. The life story of Hayati Misman, the representative of the expressionist movement, is as follows;

He studied at Akşehir Teacher Training School between 1961-1964 and worked as a teacher in Erzincan between 1964-1965. He studied at Ankara Gazi Education Institute, Department of Business Education between 1965-1968. Between 1970 and 1975, he studied graphic design at the Kassel State Academy of Fine Arts, which he attended with a Ministry of Education scholarship. He started working at Gazi Education Institute, Department of Painting and Crafts in 1975 and received a proficiency degree in art from the same university in 1984. The artist received the title of associate professor from Gazi University in 1987. Between 1987 and 2001, he worked as a faculty member at Bilkent University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Design and Music. He received his professorship from Hacettepe University in 2001 and retired from the same institution in 2005.

The artist, who tries to portray the forms of his own nature, not of nature, currently continues his duty as a guest professor at Bilkent University Faculty of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture.

The artist is one of Turkey’s leading names, especially in printmaking. The most important feature in the picture is ‘line’. An expressionist line and the patternist attitude that comes to the fore with this line cannot be ignored.
