Oil PainterRuhi Aksoy
“I try to make the brush dance and the lively colors of paint almost sing. Capturing that magic I see is my inspiration, it means everything to me.”
Ruhi Aksoy became addicted to fine arts at a young age. His surroundings were realistic and the colors developed Ruhi’s dreamy side.
During his studies at Peterborough Technical College Ruhi tried to satisfy both sides by being interested in football and painting, however he spent most of his business life in the marketing sector.
Ruhi believes that there is no such thing as ‘art’. There are only artists. “Some people once scribbled roughly bison pictures on the wall of a cave with colored earth; today some of them buy paint and paint walls or wooden curtains and produce many other things. There is no harm in defining all these activities as art, as long as it is not forgotten that this word can have different meanings depending on the place and time.”
Ruhi’s work primarily is in Oil on Canvas and he currently works from Southern California and Istanbul.
