Artists Thrive in Bodrum's Beauty and Creative Energies!

Bodrum intoxicates people with her beauty, with her shining sun on the top of her deep blue sea. It is not only her beauty, but also her surrounding creative energies, steeped in history and culture, which draws artists wanting to be a part of that vibrant energy.

Bodrum artists, in the search of nature, freedom, and passion try to capture that positive energy in their works.

Please join our tireless supporter of Bodrum arts, Özlem Yavaşca, in showcasing five local artists.
