Abidin Dino

ABİDİN DİNO (1913 - 1993)

He was born in Istanbul in 1913. He spent his childhood in Europe, as his family settled in Geneva and then in France the year he was born. He returned to Istanbul with his family in 1925. He started studying at Robert College. After the death of his father and then his mother, he abandoned his education due to his interest in art and started to improve himself in the fields of painting, caricature and writing with the support of his older brother, the poet Arif Dino. His early works were published in many magazines and books. He founded the "D Group" in 1933. He was interested in cinema in Paris and Leningrad; He served as assistant director and director.

He went to Paris between 1937 and 1939. During these years, he developed friendships with names that excelled in different branches of art, such as T. Tazara, Picasso, Cocteau, Malraux, G. Stein, Eisenstein, Babel and Mayerhold. He returned to Istanbul in the 1940s and took part in the "Port Painters" (New People) Group. In the 1950s, he met Guttuso, Moravia, Savinio in Rome, and Soupault, Aragorn, Lurçat, and Prevert in Paris. He settled in Paris in 1952 and opened exhibitions in France, Algeria and America. In Dino's paintings, which span a wide range of technical and aesthetic aspects and include works from different periods, it is possible to observe all the approaches that should concern an artist, such as the past and the future, the present, the living environment, the reality of the world, within the deep frames of a common artistic temperament.

For Abidin Dino, art is all kinds of objects and formations, experiences and knowledge that extend from the past to the future and cover the artist's area of interest and sensitivity. For this reason, a constant search and renewal has been valid for every period of Dino. His paintings are based on intellectual and visual foundations. What connects periodic works together is the continuity of this intellectuality and visuality and their organic relationship within themselves. He died in Paris in 1993.
