Prof. Dr. Özkul: We are trying to ensure the promotion of TRNC at international platforms…”
In his opening remarks, Professor Ali Efdal Özkul stated that Nelli Bube’s paintings hold a worthy place in the private collections and art galleries in different countries across the world.

“Using a semi-decorative style in her works, the artist remained loyal to the culture of Kazakhstan and reflected her admiration for the beauty of Cyprus in her Blooming Cyprus and Colors of Northern Cyprus. Today, we will experience fully the pleasure of being at a distinguished exhibition featuring artworks created by using different painting techniques on canvas such as relief printing and graphics” noted he.

Expressing that a valuable nature-themed artwork created by Özay Günsel Haskasap, the grandson of Near East University Founding Rector Dr. Suat Günsel, would take place at the exhibition, Professor Özkul delivered information about the museum activities of Near East University.

Underlining that they attached importance on art and museology as much as they attach importance on science, Professor Özkul stated that they had actualized the Cyprus Car Museum, the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts and the Cyprus Herbarium and Natural History Museum in which science, technology and art had been well blended. Stating that new museums such as Cyprus Turkish National History Museum, Maritime Museum, Knife and Sword Museum would be launched on the campus within the body of the university, Professor Özkul expressed his views:

“Under the helm of NEU Founding Rector Dr. Suat Günsel, Near East University, which adopts the 4th generation university model, has undertaken a pioneer role to create social awareness and promote TRNC at international platforms. Being aware that a society devoid of art can’t have a full existence, Near East University has been proceeding towards becoming a distinguished art destination to reflect Turkic art and culture to the entire world. Today, Near East University as well as TRNC are known in full details and followed in 14 Turkic republics and communities. As a result of the workshops organized by Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, many Turkic artists opened exhibitions of various themes at the exhibition halls of Near East University. As of the end of June, the number of these exhibitions has exceeded 50. Currently, more than 10 thousand of artworks of various art forms constitute the core of the inventory of the museum. It is clear that this number will exceed 20,000 when Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts moves to her new building on 15 November, 2020” said he.

Providing support to the mission of Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts is pleasing…
Stating that she had opened her second solo exhibition at Near East University, Kazakh artist Nelli Bube expressed his pleasure for having the opportunity to contribute the great mission of the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts.

I am pleased that my works will have a place at Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts. I have met artists from different countries and had opportunity to learn new techniques and make new friends while I was here. This new experience will be a threshold and a new starting point for me to work harder with a wider horizon. 15 of my painting at this exhibition reflect the culture of Kazakhstan, while two of them reflect the colors of unmatched beauties of North Cyprus. As a representative of Kazakhstan, I am pleased to support the mission of the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts” noted she.

Minister Sucuoğlu: “The richest art museum of the Eastern Mediterranean was created…”
Expressing that he always bursts with excitement and happiness when he comes to the exhibitions held at Near East University, Minister Faiz Sucuoğlu states that this long-running exhibition process will go on.

Touching upon that such activities had gained importance in terms of promoting our country abroad, Minister Sucuoğlu noted that Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, with her unique collection consisting of the works created by artists from Turkic republics and communities, would be well ahead the richest museum of the Eastern Mediterranean.

“This makes us proud. At the same time, it provides great contribution to the promotion of Northern Cyprus in terms of art. To determine the most ambitious target and actualize it in the best way is one of the most striking characteristics of Suat Hoca. We have witnessed his accomplishments in the field of education and health. He is racing to make Near East University the best in the field of art as well. He has created one of the richest art museums in the world. It is necessary to promote this artistic richness not only within the boundaries of our country but also to our region. Such exhibitions play a crucial role in promoting Turkic art and our country as well” noted he.

Highlighting that notable artists, who opened exhibitions in many places across the globe and whose works have a worthy place in private collections and art galleries, came to our country and provided great contribution to the mission of Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, Minister Sucuoğlu wished success and ended his remarks.
