Ebru art is an ancient painting technique that has been around for 1,500 years. In this technique, we paint on water. During the workshop, we will practice ebru art in the most traditional way, with water, paint and brushes, precisely as our ancestors did 1500 years ago.

 

Okan Akin is an artist born and raised in Turkey. He completed his art education in 1991, specialising in textile design. He worked for five years as a teacher at a vocational school in Turkey. In 1997, Okan moved to the Netherlands. In 2006, he decided to start his studio, Atelier Okan Akin, in Amsterdam, at the NDSM Loods. Here he still works full of enthusiasm and passion as an artist.

 

“I learnt traditional art techniques at an art academy in Turkey. Besides traditional art, I also studied modern art. My ultimate challenge is to apply and combine general art techniques in my contemporary work. Ebru art (paper marbling) is an example of this.”
