Illumination Workshop


Date: Thursday, 9th May 2019
Time: 14:30-17:00

Yunus Emre Enstitüsü – London welcomes you to create intricate designs with Nagihan Seymour. Illumination is the decorative art that can be found in Ottoman books and manuscripts. Illuminate the pages and experience a part of Turkish history.

Nagihan Seymour is a UK based Turkish artist. Although she is a materials engineer, she has been interested in art since her university years. She started to study traditional arts privately in 2008 in Istanbul, Turkey, learning the tradition and techniques involved in the discipline from Hanifi Dursun. Manuscript illumination was the major part of her studies, and as her style has developed she started to combine sacred geometry with classic illumination, putting a modern twist on an ancient art form. She had her first solo exhibition “Reflection and Illumination” in March 2017 at The Lightbox Gallery, Woking, which was one of the bestselling exhibitions of the gallery.
