This week, Soulivity Magazine is pleased to feature international artist Gulay Alpay!

 

Gulay Alpay’s eco-urban art happenings are both art exhibition and performance.  She asks people of all ages to stop snapping photos with their phones, and participate in her pieces. Even her body becomes part of the canvas. At similar events held in public squares in Istanbul, Vienna, New York, and London, hundreds of members of the public became art participants and engaged with her pieces.  Some even collaborated with her to create a collective canvas.  Gulay’s work is less high art and more high purpose; she blurs the lines between artist and spectator.

 

NY Arts described Gulay’s paintings as “full of poetry, vibrant colors, and light.”  Her rich use of color evokes the work of Kandinsky, Pollock, and De Kooning; and, her public interactive work blends the boundaries between craft and fine art.  In the end, viewers are struck by the beauty and grace of her passionate art.
