Bodrum Turkey Streetart

Street Art

There’s abundant, interesting street art to enjoy in Bodrum! I discover new delights every day, and during one outing met some local artists working on mosaics to grace the city center.


Local artist Neslihan Zabci Erdal has a studio in Ortakent. Neslihan uses different mediums and is a graphic designer, sculptor, ceramist, painter, and mosaic artist! I visited her studio, where you can attend mosaic workshops in the summer. Some examples of her art are in this post. Neslihan lived in Berkeley and other parts of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since retirement I’ve taken drawing and painting classes but still struggle with finding the right medium. Learning to paint authetic-looking water is on my “to do” list!


Lingering for a while in a foreign country is a beautiful experience. Un-rushed free time allows you to adjust to a new environment, forget yourself, and pick up on local nuances often missed during a more hurried journey.
