Yunus Emre Exhibition

Yunus Emre (1240-1321) is a Turkish poet and Sufi mystic who exercised immense influence on Turkish literature, from his own day until the present. Poems of Yunus Emre —despite being fairly simple on the surface— evidence his skill in describing quite abstruse mystical concepts in a clear way. His poems, written in the tradition of Anatolian folk poetry, mainly concern divine love as well as human destiny.

The aim of Yunus Emre exhibition is to encourage artists and designers around the world to produce original graphic works that are inspired by Yunus Emre, a universal humanism and love sentiment, to be exhibited as apart of the International Anadolu Calligraphy and Typography Event.
