2018 CKW LUXE STAR AWARDS
Pop Star Award
Mevsim Denktas: A Young Artist Who Draws on Her Art to Help Others
CKW LUXE is proud to announce that Mevsim Denktas is our Pop Star Award honoree. This award recognizes the young people who shine in their talent. Whether they are amazing at art, music, or writing, we want to recognize them.
Artist Mevsim Denktas began drawing at an early age. By the time she was 10, Mevsim was studying with Hanh Tran of Hanh Gallery. She had her first gallery showing at the age of 16. When she travels with her family, Mevsim indulges her love of art by immersing herself in the art of other cultures and periods. Of her affinity for art, Mevsim says this: “What makes me love art? Probably how smooth and fluid it feels. How you can turn even the uglier things in life into a masterpiece.” At Awty International School, where she is an excellent student, Mevsim participates in a number of clubs and balances her love of art with her aptitude for science and technology: Mevsim and her robotics team placed second in the 2017 First Robotics Competition (FRC) Regionals. Even with all this activity, Mevsim finds time to give back to her community by supporting various charities.
CKW LUXE would like to wish Mevsim well in the pursuit of all her interests and thank her for showing us an artist can also be a scientist.
