Contemporary. Turkish. Art.

via TurkishCulture.org
I'm just getting back from spring break and tons of work is piled up for me here, so for a quick post I'd like to direct you to the recent Sotheby's Auction of Comporary Turkish Art in London.

Burhan Dogançay (at right) really brought home the prize. The hammer price for his work, Whispering Wall II was over 277,000 GBP.

It's a beautiful name for a gorgeous piece of artwork!!! I didn't even know this auction was happening here - not that I keep abreast of auction stuff in London, LOL! But Sotheby's auctions are always in the news!!!
Yay for Burhan Dogancay!!!

Take care
