Two Artists, One Greek and One Turkish, Collaborate to Help Earthquake Victims

November 10, 2020

HANNOVER, GERMANY – Two young internationally recognized artists from two different cultures came together to help the earthquake victims in Samos, Greece and Izmir, Turkey.

Mikail Akar, age 8, the youngest abstract artist in the world, of Turkish descent, and the talented Pop Art artist Niko Nikolaides, 29, of Greek descent, created a painting together, titled SAMIR, a portmanteau word combining Samos and Izmir. The painting will be auctioned off with proceeds donated to the victims of the recent earthquake.

The two artists wanted to show the world that despite the differences between Turkey and Greece, there can be solidarity.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
