The images are based on two important paintings by Ekrem Yalcindag. The puzzle presents both and back with unique images. With the use of colors yellow, red and blue and spectrum of color, fundamentally used and questioned by so many artists throughout Art History, Yalcindag impressed and inspires diverse contrasts and illusions. He makes reference particularly to Matisse's late paper "cut-outs", and draws his inspiration for the title "contrast" from the bilateral relations between the master’s colors.

Biography: Yalcindag makes reference particularly to Matisse's late paper "cut-outs", and draws his inspiration for the title "contrast" from the bilateral relations between the master’s colors. Adopting a motif-based approach to the relationship between color and form, Ekrem Yalçındağ explores how contemporary art can relate to traditional art. He takes a particular interest in how the Byzantine and Ottoman decorative arts can influence the language of contemporary art. His paintings, incorporating decorative features that have been painstakingly executed with the finest of brushes, have color schemes that range from monochromatic to polychromatic. Although his canvases may seem to consist of the repeated depiction of a single form, they actually show a vast diversity. We sense that every tessellation in Yalçındağ’s painting has been placed in the composition with mathematical precision, creating the effect of an optical illusion. The wall painting, ‘Contrasts’, take its name from his use of primary colors and their contrasts, as well as his use of black and white. It is a contemporary interpretation of the relationship of the decorative tradition with its display spaces.
