Expressionist artists have chosen their subjects from daily life as the other movements’ artists. But they have different styles for handling subjects from other artists. The movement has a revolutionary soul which is against the objectivity commanded 19th century art. They haven’t used the colur to identify an object, they have used it absolutely as an expression tool. They have put the paradox between the objective reality and the subject in the centre of their art. That is to say they have accepted an excessive subjective world visuon by settling the “me”s radical rebel against to social life in their time. As a result it is possible to see the artists’ own instinctive form changes and deformations in this movement.
As all the artists from the world the Turkish Artists also have effected from this movement and they have show the characters of this movement from time to time in their artworks. Even some of artworks had smilarity to the artsworks made by the artists from abroad. Also today there are many painters who were effected from this movement, trying to express their emotions about objective reality by using their own models and forms.
