Orhan Umut's exhibition can be visited hosted by DG Art Project.

In Orhan Umut's paintings, there are people dressed in the color of loneliness and abandonment. These people somehow maintain their joy of life and keep their hopes green in a world of all kinds of alienation and dehumanization. That's why they left their own exclusive area and spilled over into the street, which is a collective production area. In this way, they are figures that reassure, soothe and are with us.

In this exhibition, whose main theme is "Night Vision", the heroes, who are aware that they cannot overcome some things, continue to talk about day and light, which are elements of imagination. Their being together is a rejection of the life privatized by the eff and püf company and a contribution to the understanding of space.

In Orhan Umut's works, you encounter a world where concrete observations meet conceptual thoughts. Works where cultural diversity, loneliness and abandonment are integrated with colors; It takes viewers on a deep thought and emotional journey.

The exhibition titled "Night Vision", curated by Zeynep Öztürk, by Orhan Umut, whose works are in many institutions, organizations, museums and private collections, can be visited at DG Art Project until May 11, 2024.
