Ahmet Güneştekin kicking off new exhibition series at Antrepo
Turkish artist Ahmet Güneştekin is this week unfurling the first leg of his upcoming series of exhibitions with a new show in İstanbul.

Güneştekin's show opens on Tuesday and is set to run through Dec. 30 at Antrepo No. 3 in the Karaköy quarter. From there, the 46-year-old artist's work will travel overseas for a series of international exhibitions in locations that have yet to be announced.

Famed for his larger-than-life and often colorful depictions of figures and events recounted in Anatolian and Mesopotamian myths and legends, Güneştekin has turned to such sociological themes as religions, wars and crimes against humanity in his newest collection, according to a written statement from the exhibition's organizers on Monday.

Titled "Yüzleşme" (Encounter), the exhibition was billed as an "encounter of the human being with art" in the statement. Güneştekin will hold a news conference about his new show Tuesday morning at Antrepo No. 3, where he is also expected to detail his upcoming international exhibitions.

Born in 1966 in the southeastern Turkish province of Batman, Güneştekin opened his first major solo show in 2003 in the Atatürk Cultural Center (AKM). He opened his own art studio in 2010 in İstanbul's Beyoğlu district.
