Great Wall of Brooklyn: Next Artist Chosen

Myrtle Avenue's intriguing Great Wall of Brooklyn will have a new artist - Alev Ozaynak!  Looking forward to the installation... Alev Ozkaynak is an emerging artist who graduated in 2008 with a BFA in Drawing and Art History from the Pratt Institute.  She has participated in a few Brooklyn-based group shows, and her mural for GWOB will be her first major solo art project.  Her artwork is primarily black and white ink drawings that reference the markings of Abstract Expressionism and Japanese ink brush painting.  But upon closer viewing, the viewer’s imagination is triggered, as the forms of natural elements such as flowers, birds, snakes and insects are revealed. For her GWOB project, Alev Ozkaynak will be creating a digital mural based on a new related drawing.
