Piril Torgut is a young Cypriot artist who paints and sculpts visceral images of a marine world. Visual Voices is a global organization and World BEYOND War affiliate that finds artists who can help heal the troubled real world. In this episode of our monthly podcast series, Piril Torgut and Marina Neophytou and Alden Jacobs of Visual Voices join Marc Eliot Stein and Greta Zarro for an unrestrained conversation about art, violence, the Greek/Turkish conflict in Cyprus, and our methods of finding hope through art.
Here’s “Orca Calf”, one of Piril Torgut’s works.
Music: “What The Water Gave Me” by Florence + the Machine.
