“I studied design in college and lived in Istanbul for a while. We had a project dedicated to painting across the walls of the city. It was my dream to take that project to Amed as well. When I returned to Amed, I asked myself:  why don’t I start painting on the city walls? Once we got a permit for the project, we immediately started working. Because the Sur district in Amed has been through a lot and the children were feeling dismal, I decided to work in Sur. I wanted to see how delighted the children and people of the district would be when they see the colorful walls. Artistic education is not very widespread I’m Turkey, that is why there are many children here who have no studied a painting class till now. So we decided this was the best place. I want to reform all the ruined walls here into colorful pictures of women and historical events.”
