On the streets of Istanbul, many people like Yalcin’s art work. Many of them often stop to offer words of praise as she paints. Others take pictures of her work.
Ulas operates a restaurant in the city.
“Coloring the walls and shop fronts is beautiful, rather than seeing just shutters or bare, derelict walls. This is much more colorful. When you wake up in the morning, streets look much different. I think this is super.”
Graffiti art is becoming an important part of Istanbul’s culture. At a recent arts show, the most popular area had graffiti created by women artists.
Yalcin says she sees this popularity continuing because it provides beauty and happiness for people throughout the city.
