A painting after a long time. Inspired by turkish writer Orhan Pamuk's 'Istanbul memories of a city'. The view of the Istanbul city from the bosphorus river is attempted in a painting. Of course I have never visited the city myself. The basis of the painting is a photograph from Pamuk's book, a silhouette of the city with mosques and endless mansions along the bosphoros. All along the memoir the river is the romantic icon of his own life in the city. River is the only changeless element in the everchanging world of Istanbul.
