To our beloved mother 'Istanbul'

for every smile that was cast on this street

The theory that habitat defines the species is awfully true.. The sensation fills you the second you set foot on the street. You are one in 20.000.000 people and this time your parents arent holding your hand. The code for survival is instinctive, your posture and language follow.
In time you learn tricks, in time your tricks define you.. Within a hundred feet radius of a shiny YSL store there are over 30 people from 10 different racial backgrounds and are all willing to cut you open for your shoes.. You gotta stick together..
In time you feel posessive of the city, in time the city posesses you... Your friends know which street to find you.. The city is over 3000 years old yet it feels like a simple fractal pattern- a basic 'feel' -and its astonishing to see how many time your guess fails.. bitter smile. The city smiles back at you, your mother.

If these walls could talk...


(btw: Istanbul is a city settled at the connection point of the Asian and European sides of the Republic of Turkey. It has served as a capital to a large number of 'countries' including Eastern Roman Empire (Byzentine) and the Ottomans) The city is approximately 3000 years old (The first time someone built something there) and the population is estimated to be around 20.000.000. THe canal running in the middle connects the Meditteranean Sea and the Black Sea....

It strikes me as a place that I'd be fascinated to visit, and frightened at the same time. Beautiful.

Well done, absolute brilliance


Istanbul....There is no need for words about Istanbul, you just feel it, you with it, then you be Istanbul itself.

I look at this piece and I think this could be Istanbul in year 3000...

This is amazing... I know how hard acrylic paint and charcoal can be sometimes, so I commend you on just getting it done alone.... that's a task in and of it's self... so dark and mysterious, and elegantly drawn...great job...:clap:

this is lovely.
however, there is one thing that's been bugging me. maybe it's partly my perspective, but where hte ceiling opens up, we can see there are two people standing on the roof of hte city. except, they don't really seem to be standing on the roof - it looks off, though i can't quite put my finger on why. just something to keep in mind, i suppose.

wow great painting, like the color :) and the use of charcoal to outline very nice

ONe thing it the title is a little hard to see on the bottom of the frame, I guess you had a lager version and reduced it to this size making the title hard to see?

very nice painting :D

In my eyes this seems rather anti, portraying the uselessness, the falseness, the empty big whoop. But that doesn't mean the piece isn't rather awesome.

Constantinople is the coolest word ever invented.
