"Istanbul’s Pera Museum opened a new exhibition on May 25 centered on the art of Mario Prassinos, who was born in Istanbul into an Ottoman Greek family and began his avant-garde artistic career in early 20th century Paris. Displayed until Aug. 14, the exhibition brings together a large selection of Prassinos’ works, ranging from paintings and book illustrations to tapestries, portraits, and engravings. “Mario Prassinos: In Pursuit of an Artist, Istanbul-Paris-Istanbul” reveals the striking and unique character of Prassinos and his distinctive style shifting from Surrealism to a more realistic approach.Curated by Seza Sinanlar Uslu, with the consultancy of expert Catherine Prassinos and advisor Thierry Rye, the exhibition welcomes back this original 20th century artist to his birthplace in Pera, Istanbul, on the 100th anniversary of his birth. The works of Studio Zigzag, inspired by Mario Prassinos's artworks can also be seen at the museum shop until Aug. 14!
