Orhan Özkaya was born 1931 in Muğla,
where he also received his elementary school education. Since the
seminars of the Istanbul Academy of Fine Art during the 1947-1948
years were closed, he returned home and received painting lessons
from his former schoolteacher Kemalettin ALTAYLI.
He finished his professional
education in the years 1949-1952 at the Istanbul Sağlık School and
started his career as a state employee at the Health Ministry’s
Centre for Tuberculosis Eradication. After his retirement in 1978,
he opened a business for four years. In all of this time he
continued painting without interruption. Presently he works with oil
paints in his own studio.
