About Ali Kursun
Ali Kursun is a Geneva based Turkish/Swiss artist born in Istanbul in 1967. He is a self-taught artist and his painting is purely intuitive. He began to create his first paintings in dry pastel which a canvas is uniformly covered with earth colours, usually grey and brown; he also uses the technique for large paintings and movements. His work has received attention rapidly in a short career that spans only seven years of creative practice. He uses a variety of unorthodox methods to produce paintings and pictures. His work is deliberately experimental. Out of his immersion in different cultures and its people, his art manages to retain its quintessence: the beat of the human heart. He is a story-teller, a futurist, and a thoughtful enquirer into the conditions of life. His inquiry into the human knowledge is seminal to his personal motivation. What pulls Ali to art is his passion for creativity and its unlimited potential ways of expression. "You either like an artwork or you don't. Art is intuitive. It is the language of senses" he says. Ali Kursun lives and creates in Geneva, Switzerland. He can be reached at email@example.com

Solo exhibition "Irresistible", Fall 2017 - Geneva, Switzerland
Knowingly or not we encounter irresistible thoughts, pleasures, feelings, envies, objects, beliefs, assumptions, ideas and concepts every day in our lives. In fact, these irresistible convictions shape our personalities, characters, attitudes, relationships, souls and even our physical bodies.
Unrecognisable irresistibility exists.
It is critical that we learn how to recognise irresistibilities as they appear in our lives and not to be driven by them unknowingly.
