Born in 1982 in Eskisehir, Turkey, Sertan SALTAN studied in Turkeys most exclusive art atelier located in Istanbul. Mr. Saltans technique and early training was shaped by various Russian and European influences through which his unique visual and conceptual vocabulary developed. His fresh approach to traditional schools of painting and sculpture and his curiosity to explore avant garde topics through art, caused his talent to be recognized at an early age. Mr. Saltan had several exhibitions inTurkey and was honored by the Turkish Naval Forces in their annual painting contest. He is also the winner of the BP sponsored 2011 ’Young Artist’ award by the National Portrait Gallery London, world’s most prestigious portrait competition. Mr. Saltans paintings are in private collections in the US and Europe and are also displayed in government offices and foreign consulates. Mr. Saltan currently works and resides in Avon, Connecticut (USA), where he is developing a studio for his future works.
