Gigi Istanbul

Earlier this year Miminne completed a project for a large restaurant group in Turkey. Istanbul Doors have opened GIGI, and commissioned Miminne to produce six large images of female heads. She says "The restaurant interior was themed around the famous Turkish story of the nightingale and the rose. Since Istanbul in itself is a place where the East meets the West, I tried to draw women with different cultural backgrounds, trying to differentiate with accessories, make-up, hair styles and physical features. The colours are predominantly in the shades of different reds and pinks, to match to the designated area." The artworks are now on display, reproduced to fit the scale of the space, each measuring approximately 1.6m x 2.35m. Miminne also says "If you happen to be in Istanbul, why not enjoy a drink or two sitting in front of my artwork!"
