Yigit Yazici, what’s in your fridge?
“Breakfast!!! The most important part of our day … cheese, olives, fresh butter, and COCONUT OIL !!! Honey is added from the kitchen. Yogurt is an everyday present item, mostly eaten at lunch time. Champagne for atelier evening dinners… we always have guests to share happy meals together. Lemons, apples, bananas, and melons are Idil’s favorites. Goat milk as well.”
“Memories and messages hanging on our fridge.
Berlin, California, Barcelona.
Some nutritional facts about oils, seaweed (hijiki, arame, kelp, kombu, wakame, nori), sprouts, nuts. Quick phone numbers of restaurants and markets to remember.”
Yigit is an artist living and working in Istanbul, Turkey. He credits Expressionism, Pop Art and the CoBRA movement as the biggest influences on his work and all three characteristics from the movements are reflected strongly in his layered paintings of bold colors and shapes. To learn more about Yigit, check out our Q&A with the artist about his latest collaboration with ABSOLUT.
