Emel Vardar studied art in the studios of the Mimar Sinan University Museum of Painting and Sculpture
Association.Over a long period she painted seascapes and one of her paintings was acquired by the Turkish
Naval Forces Headquarters. She had a series of personal painting and sculpture exhibitions and
participated regularly in art fairs, contests and festivals.
While she was attaining more recognition as an artist she also acquired another artistic identity. She
opened the Eylul Art Gallery in 1993. Dedicated completely to art, here she presented the artworks
of important Turkish painters and sculptors together with young artists’ works. For the last few years
she has worked mainly on sculptures. She creates female figures and busts using various materials
and techniques. Although her sculptures represent the beautiful and naive female figure she actually
wants to express its strength.
She is very proud to have won the prestigious ”Individual Disarmament and Peace” Bronze sculpture
The artist describes her sculptures as the solidification of her feelings and ideas in the enchanting
magic of crystal and glass. One of her crystal sculptures is on permanent exhibition in the Museum of
Contemporary Glass Artworks in Eskisehir. The artist paints and sculpts in contemporary style. Her
creations are exhibited in private collections and in Turkish newspapers and art journals.
Recently the artist has exhibited through the Svenska Konstgalleriet at International Art Fairs and
world renowned Museums.
