Pi Artworks London is proud to present a solo exhibition by Vienna-Istanbul based artist Kemal Seyhan. For his debut solo exhibition in the UK, Seyhan will present signature paintings from past 3 decades, new paintings, drawings and sculptural objects.
Kemal Seyhan has a collaborative approach in his art practice, dialoguing with writers, poets and philosophers.
Since the 1980s, Seyhan has been developing works on an abstract language that is distant from any narrative elements. This exhibition represents an exploration of his forty-year artist practice focusing on four words:
horizontal - vertical - colour - intensification
