Memik Kibarkaya (23. May -01. June)
artist was born in 1950 and graduated from the university as
a veterinary surgeon. To be able to exercise his occupation as a painter, he
believed that he had to be connected closely to animals and nature to have
the readiness to paint nature. Sometimes he works without a break for many

he does not care any more
for criticism or mockery, just following his own way.
With pleasure he is ready
for any discussion with YOU …
