New York Subway Walls
by Burhan DOGANÇAY

While preparing an exhibition of his recent works, New York Subway Walls, which will open at the Radio House Gallery, 601 West 26 St. on October 3 (and run through November 9), Burhan Dogançay unexpectedly had to undergo multiple bypass surgery.


After a one week stay at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, he is now recovering at home.The operation, performed by Dr. Mehmet Oz, was a success, and with Dr. Oz's permission, Dogançay hopes to be able to attend the opening reception of his exhibit. Dr. Oz himself and many of those who took care of Dogançay during his hospital stay are also expected to attend.

Born in Istanbul, Dogançay lived several years in Paris where he studied
law and earned a doctorate in economics at the University of Paris, while simultaneously taking art courses at La Grande Chaumiere, before making New York his permanent home in 1962.

Dogançay is known for a body of work that grew out of his fascination with urban walls, a theme he has consistently pursued throughout his artistic career.

For Dogançay urban walls have a special meaning: they testify to the
passage of time, reflecting social, political and economic change and bear witness to the assault from the elements and the minds of people who leave their mark on them.

1967 was the first year in which New York subway walls served as the
subject of his paintings. The series of recent works currently on exhibit at the Radio House Gallery are vivid renditions of New York subway walls during the renovation process currently underway and testify not only  to his ongoing interest in New York's eternal metamorphosis, but also to his enduring fascination with urban walls throughout the world.

Dogançay's work has been exhibited worldwide and is represented in
over 50 major museum and corporate collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Guggenheim Museum, New York, Musee de la Ville de Paris, The State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, Museum of Greater Victoria, Canada.

His work is featured in several books, which are available at major US book stores and amazon.com.. His latest publication, Works on Paper
(1951-2000), is scheduled to be released by Hudson Hills Press in spring 2003.
