I was commissioned for the mosaic design at a subway station in Bursa, Turkey. In 2013, I embarked on this ambitious project, covering a space of approximately 100 meters in length. What makes this project unique is the use of non-reusable wall tiles that had served their purpose previously. Through creative recycling and upcycling, I transformed these discarded tiles into stunning mosaic artworks. By breathing new life into these materials, the subway station became a vibrant and sustainable display of art. The project aimed to promote environmental consciousness while adding a touch of beauty and cultural significance to the urban landscape. This sustainable mosaic design serves as a testament to the power of artistic expression in both creating visually stunning spaces and promoting eco-friendly practices in public spaces.
Every piece of this breathtaking mosaic was handcrafted with pure craftsmanship. Tile by tile, they were shaped and laid by hand to create a unique composition. This approach gave the mosaic a special authenticity and a sense of artisanal flair.
What makes this project even more remarkable is its sustainable nature. By reusing non-reusable wall tiles, these materials were given a new purpose and transformed into a beautiful artwork. This mosaic at the subway station in Bursa is one of the few examples worldwide where sustainable mosaic art was applied in construction.
This sustainable mosaic design stands as a symbol of the importance of recycling and upcycling in art. It demonstrates that even seemingly unusable materials can be transformed into something beautiful and meaningful. The project is not only an aesthetic highlight but also a testament to how art and sustainability can go hand in hand. It showcases the power of artistic creativity in promoting environmental consciousness and making a positive impact on public spaces. The mosaic at the Bursa subway station serves as a source of inspiration and reflection on the possibilities of sustainable art and design in the modern world.
I am proud to be part of this project and to demonstrate through my work that sustainable mosaic art in construction is possible. It is a wonderful example of how art can inspire us to be more conscious about resources and protect our environment. Let us spread this message of sustainability and continue to promote innovative and eco-friendly approaches in art. Together, we can create a more sustainable and beautiful world through our artistic endeavors.
