From 9 till 31 March, Teşvikiye Sanat Galerisi welcomes the Belgian contemporary artist Clem Peltier. His work has been exhibited in galleries around the world, including in Italy, the United States, France, Canada, Ukraine, Japan, Germany, China, Sweden, Argentina, Ireland, Malaysia , Switzerland and Australia. Visitors to renowned art fairs like ARCO Madrid, Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Cologne, Art Forum (Berlin), CIGE, FIAC, ShContemporary are familiar with the work of this leading artist that connoisseurs call a 'master of light'.

Clem Peltier says about his work: "I get my inspiration from the countries I visit, the books I read, from Hadewijch to Marx. My creative process is stimulated by studying great thinkers like Wittgenstein or Rumi. It feels like I'm having a conversation with them. I try to find a harmony between colors and light. At 16, I started traveling. My first travels were to Turkey, the Maghreb countries (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria) and the Balkans. Everything I see, experiment and read is reflected in my work. I've always had the desire to learn about different cultures through books and travels. It has made me an eternal traveler. My travels to countries that are custodians of great civilisations, like India, China and Tibet, as well as the discovery of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and the Mayan and Inca civilizations have radically changed me as a person. In a way, they have given me life."

After the preview at the London Art Fair in January, this exhibition showcases Clem Peltier's new collection 'Bridges between East and West', aptly, in the city that connects East and West. Great art. For the first time in Turkey at the Teşvikiye Sanat Galerisi from 9 March 2013.
