Rıdvan Aşar

Both tile designs, with delicate and fluid linework, recall the tradition of Ottoman miniature painting. The first design features an elegant bird grasping tulips in its beak. The shape of the bird's body references the form of the tulip.





The second design again depicts an anthropomorphized tulip as an intricately detailed fish. Both motifs of fish and bird are seen in classical as well as many contemporary tile designs. However, Rıdvan Aşar's approach is exceptional in its graceful incorporation of miniature technique.
