I'm Berk Armağan (23 years old). I'm a self-taught artist who lives in the heart of Istanbul. I study Turkish language teaching in Istanbul University. I draw paintings on paper cups to travel the world. I didn't get an education to draw on cups, it's an ability and since my childhood I have an interest in drawing.

I hadn't got enough money to travel the world so one day I hit one very good idea. I've started to draw on cups which people were throwing away to garbages. Apart from traveling the world, I have many projects to fill the cups with! This project is one of them. I drew some famous icons of this ancient city which defines it very well. I named this project as 'Cups of Istanbul.' Istanbul is a city with thousands of years of history and many things has been said and written for it, like many unique arts too. This is Istanbul from my point of view on cups!

Is this the mosque commissioned by a woman/in honor of a woman? With many pastel colors? I visited such a mosque, took many beautiful photos, back in '93.
