A Collaborative Organization by
ARTSTUDIO & WORLDWIDE ARTISTS FOR PEACE

”ART FOR PEACE”

Each artist is a “peace-artist” who devotes oneself to art… Art is the conjunction point of the paths opening to “the World Peace” and the luminous face of peace…Art lets heat, color, feel, think and inquire. It is an atmosphere, where the balance and communication between the internal and external worlds will be scrutinized and commented, within the aesthetic solutions can be embraced. Peace is a concept which we imagine as a harmony of the life… The Art looks for beauty, harmony and brings human being towards freedom. The ART and PEACE are intensively one within the other. Peace is with art, art is in peace!!… Having been originated from different cultures, we unified our experiences on the concept of “ART for PEACE” to realize the first step of this project in Istanbul. “Artists for Peace” argue; to have friendship, brother – sisterhood and peace between multi-cultures and to create the peace will not be just a dream, but instead, a necessity and reality of being an artist and human. Our art action for peace is a concrete and real indicator of our togetherness, which started at virtual domain. We insist on upgrading this “Ship of Peace”, which will depart from Istanbul Bosphorus, to a “Fleet of Peace”, by participating more “Artists for Peace” from all over the world and we say “welcome !” to everyone and every institution, who wants to support our initiative.
ARTISTS FOR PEACE ART ACTION exhibit the art works, created in active attitude against the destruction and nonsense of violence and war. The action present by emphasizing the necessity of love, friendship, solidarity, human rights, pluralistic communication between different cultures, respect and tolerance to each other and ART FOR PEACE!!! We say; NO to VIOLENCE and WAR!!! , YES to ART and PEACE!!!
