Image of the Day - Ali Yanya

In the run up to the Palace Art and Craft Fair this May we'll be running daily previews of the exhibiting artists and craftspeople and their work. 

We start off with Ali Yanya who exhibited at the last Palace Art Fair in 2011.

Istanbul born Ali Yanya took a fine arts degree at Marmara University and went on to teach at Mimar Sinan University for two years.  Conceiving an ambition to master the art of printmaking he won a Turkish government overseas study scholarship and secured a place at the RCA where he gained an MA with Distinction (his talent being singled out by Peter Blake) and returned to lecture at Mimar Sinan University.  He moved to the UK in 1996 and has since been teaching at Kensington and Chelsea College and elsewhere and exhibiting widely.
