This is Fatma Cakmak, a Turkish Ebru Artist who also teaches this art to University students, and myself with one of her piece of Art.
I was intrigued by EBRU, that is the Turkish Art of Marbling. This is not a new art actually. The method maybe the same but the design and paints used for this art varies from artist to artist. I remember using acrylic paint and oil when I first learnt this art in school years ago. For Fatma Cakmak, the artsit who demonstrated this art used natural paint from plants. More information on this art can be found in the net and this is just one of the link here
Following are pictures that I took of Fatma Cakmak demonstrating this Turkish Art during the Exhibition at the Ground Fair of Kuala Lumpur Convention Center on March 2, 2012.
