BELKIS TAŞKESER

Belkıs Taşkeser was born in 1942 in İstanbul. After working in Germany and England she returned to Turkey and acted in theater for a while. She started painting in the early 1970’s with illustrations for children's books. She took part in almost all group exhibitions opened between 1985-1990 as the contracted artist of Galerie Naïfs du Monde Entier. She attended the first and second International Naive Halls held in Paris in 1987-1988. She also created works for the collection of The Musée d'Art Naïf-Max Fourny, established in Paris. She produced original printmaking at Çamlıca Art House in 1986. Since 1990 she has left naive painting and turned to searches that lead her to abstraction.
