Explore an artist’s studio in Istanbul

8 Feb

I’ve posted before about my fascination with artists’ studios,  but I’ve never seen anything quite like this amazing live/work space belonging to Turkish painter and sculptor Melih Özuysal.

What a fascinating space… looking at it you can imagine the smell of oil paint and turpentine mingling with orange zest, pomegranates and plaster dust. Everywhere you look there are snippets of inspiration for Melih’s paintings and sculptures – find out more in this interview with the artist.

    Wow – I love this space. So inspirational!

    What a find! How did you come across it? I write a series on my blog called creative spaces (http://confessionsofadesigngeek.com/category/creative-spaces/) and I’ve never found anything quite like this one!
