“My portraits reflect the feelings of the soul; of both the artist and the muse.” – Bahri Genc –
Bahri Genc is one of Turkey’s foremost portrait artists with an impressive portfolio that includes numerous international solo and group exhibitions as well as permanent collections in many renowned museums. He is the first Turkish artist to be invited to the permanent collection of the Davis Lisboa Museum of Contemporary art in Barcelona.
Bahri is leading the way in contemporary portraiture. He has a unique signature style that incorporates bold brush strokes and an innovative use of colour not previously seen in portrait work, giving this genre a new edge and perspective. Genc’s latest work is following a bold path towards a new and more abstract portrait style.
