Paper Mosaics

Teachers

  • January 13, 2022 / 19:30

Based on the artworks in the exhibition, we talk about the mosaic, which is an art form that has its origins in the floor decorations of antiquity but developed and flourished in the Byzantine Empire into a means of expressing the sacred through imagery. In the workshop, we examine the historical heritage of Istanbul from the perspective of Byzantine art, which we imitate using materials like paper and EVA. We also explore methods of bringing this method into the classroom as well.
