Mustafa Hastürk: “This a rebellion against the destruction of nature …”
Mustafa Hastürk said that trees represent fertility and life since the early ages and that in his paintings, he said he wanted to draw attention to the destruction of nature and the destruction of life in general.

Hastürk: “Every tree is a human and every forest is a society. We all depend on this source of life. Our forests, the main source of life, are moving rapidly towards the end of their millions of years due to human damage. The destruction of trees and forests means the destruction of humanity. We need to be very sensitive about this issue, we must raise this awareness. It is our most important responsibility to future generations to declare unconditional protection as a source of life for future generations without polluting, destroying our natural assets. In my paintings, oil painting, which I created with acrylic and printing techniques, I tried to emphasize the need to protect the forests, trees, that is, the natural life as a rebellion against extinction.”
