The creative world includes a tremendous sense of freedom. All rules tend to disappear when we unleash our imagination.
We want to share with you one of our extremely talented customers that lives creatively daily, Gigi Turker and the Art of Gigi. An artist, who combines acrylic paints, Swarovski crystals and other mediums onto her canvas' to create truly unique masterpieces. She was classically trained in Turkey at Ankara Devlet Konservatuari. Her works have been exhibited at galleries, festivals and museums internationally, as well as purchased by private collectors. This includes showings at the WARD-NASSE and the Amsterdam Art Galleries in New York. She also won “The Peoples Choice” award at the Hopkins Art Center three years in a row. There is something absolutely gorgeous about Gigi’s paintings. It’s how she effortlessly blends different mediums together, transitioning between acrylic and crystals to create beautiful pieces of art. She paints beautiful women who not only have style and class but seem to hold a sacred secret. Some of her beautiful collection can be found on her website: www.artofgigi.com.
