Kuzgun Acar - Metal Sculptures

Kuzgun Acar (28 February 1928 – 4 February 1976) was a Turkish sculptor, well known for his works in metal. He is best known for his abstract sculpture and is considered one of the pioneers of modern sculpture in Turkey.
He worked with wire mesh, making sculptures reminiscent of Naum Gabo (1890–1977). He taught painting at Istanbul Atatürk High School and painting-sculpturing at the high school he finished. He displayed his sculpture works in wire at a personal exhibition in the American news Center in 1957. Between 1958 and 1960, he experimented making various forms with wire, nails, metal bars and scrap by gas welding. He performed experiments in enameling. His work created in nails was awarded the first prize at the Biennale de Paris in 1961.
