Emotions · Facial Expressions · Oil Painting
Oliver Murray is a multimedia artist born in Istanbul and graduated from the Istanbul State Academy of Fine Arts (ISAFA). Oil on canvas is his favorite medium; expressionism and facial emotions are the core elements of his abstract art.
He approaches art with an abstract style, he wants to communicate through painting the emotions that he himself felt in different phases of his life. He particularly values the use of colors, giving them an emotional identity.
The observer is led by the artist to make the emotions observed on the canvas his own. However, a space for the interpretation of the emotion is also left. Facial features are not perfectly defined, and the imperfect shapes leave a deliberate uncertainty about the emotions represented.
