Prof. Dr. Şanlıdağ; “In 2020, we will continue important projects without slowing down”
“In 2020, we will continue to carry out important projects without slowing down. Today we are together at the opening of the solo painting exhibition consisting of 34 paintings of Kazakhstan painting artist Altynshash Alpysbayeva (Creative Consciousness). We would like to thank our artist for her contributions to the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, and congratulate her wholeheartedly. I sincerely thank all members of the Günsel Family, all our artists, our employees, especially our Teacher, Suat Günsel, who has led many important projects, especially the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts Project, and led us with his experience in all areas of life.”

Altynshash Alpysbayeva; “To serve humanity through science and art knowledge is to light the universe with reason and thought.”
Kazakhstan painting artist Altynshash Alpysbayeva; “I am honored to participate in the Northern Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts project. Dear Dr. Suat Günsel, I am very grateful to you for giving us the opportunity to participate in this magnificent project. Your interest in creativity and your ideology have been a great guide for my ideas.”

“There is a great place in the big world and for me it is Cyprus.”
“To serve humanity through science and art knowledge is to light the universe with reason and thought. There is a great place in the big world and for me it is Cyprus. This is a place where people appreciate their inner world, reveal their potential, and make it possible to create works of art. Also, thanks to this project, artists have the opportunity to renew themselves and go beyond their borders. In this context, I would like to present you the works that have matured within me through art, my dear brothers. As I present my gratitude to everyone, I welcome you to my exhibition!”

Minister Sucuoğlu; “Colorful pictures warm us in this cold winter day”
Minister of Labor and Social Security Faiz Sucuoğlu, “These colorful pictures that we lay our eyes on when we come to these halls on a cold, shaky winter day warm us. Every time we attend exhibitions, we see different colors, different themes and dozens of paintings. We are really surprised and confused to determine which one we really like. I see action everywhere, I see a new activity everywhere. Nobody should be sorry for our participation at these events, we will come to places where there are such good and beautiful things, we will continue to come. We will also continue to participate in the openings. We know it is a duty to attend everywhere we receive an invitation, because our job is to stand by the truth, to support the truth. It does not matter whether it is about such a beautiful and creative art made in our country or in another field. We will come to the launch of the car very soon. Therefore, I am grateful to our Teacher, Suat Günsel, and the whole Near East family, our hardworking teachers working here.”

“Near East University makes a great contribution to the promotion of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus”
Thanks to Near East University, many international meetings and publications also contribute greatly to the promotion of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. At the same time, thousands of valuable artists come here, it is a different event for an artist to stay here for a while and be happy here and produce. We come and see the pictures and say how beautiful they are, but there is a lot of effort behind this art, there is a great contribution and most importantly, there is very serious motivation. Therefore, the beautiful works they make here, when they return to their countries, the word-of-mouth promotions, and telling the beautiful memories they have experienced here is one of the most valuable and realistic promotions for me. At the same time, it is a presentation of those who made these works of art and themselves. As long as the right and useful things are here, we will continue to come here. If an artist is not happy where he lives, he cannot produce or everything he produces has a certain limit, he cannot go above a certain quality, but what I see here is really admirable and I hope that these works will continue with the same intensity and quality, and we will be at the opening of these exhibitions with the same frequency. I think we should have contributed to the steps taken by the Near East.”
