About the Artist: Based in Istanbul, Yasemin Cengiz Çağatay (b. 1963) is truly a painter of the 21st century. First introduced to art and art history by her mother, who was an artist and art teacher herself, Çağatay began experimenting with and learning about art at an early age. In conjunction with her studies in art at the Galatasaray Lycée—one of the oldest and most prestigious schools in Turkey—Çağatay won her first art competition while still in high school.
The artist initially forwent her pursuit of becoming an artist in favor of working in finance management for ten years, but she ultimately left that career and returned to her true passion. Honing her skill as an artist through additional studies, including at the Sotheby’s Institute of Fine Art, as well as practicing in the great museums of the world, the self-taught artist’s eclectic training helped form her signature style, recognized for its intuitive use of color and otherworldly compositions that are an intriguing blend of figuration and abstraction.
