Art Exhibition ‘Thoughts and Crafts’ by Salih Mustafa Çizel

By Heidi Trautmann

Salih M.Çizel is a Cypriot man who has dedicated his life to painting, it is his passion and working with paint is in his thoughts day and night, he has been fighting for his art since he was a boy in Larnaka and he is still fighting for it today.

He has been exhibiting his art since 1968 more or less every year, also in various European countries. Since 1997 he has his own little gallery ‘Rönesans’ in Lapta but he is known to most Cypriots and to many expats as the ‘painting restaurateur’ of Girne harbour. He loves communicating through his art, he loves his country and has a deep respect for everything living in it.

I have conducted an interview with him to learn more about his life which will be published in the following issue of Cyprus Observer under the title ‘Creative people living in our midst – My School was Life’.


The opening evening of his exhibition is on Friday, 07 March at 18:30 hrs under the auspices of HE, the President of TRNC, Dr. Derviş Eroğlu.
