About Mikail Akar: Born in 2012 in Cologne, his career began by chance on his fourth birthday his parents with a small canvas and finger paints as an alternative gift to usual toys he already had. Mikail began his prolific artistic journey, and he still paints at his Studio in Cologne, Germany.  His talents were seen in an early painting and his parents fully encouraged him to continue his work. Watching Online video tutorials together Mikail learned certain painting techniques and soon the little artist began to paint nonstop. His intro into the art world launched shortly after when adult artists began to preview his work more. Mikail has held several exhibitions already in cities across Germany, Vienna, Zurich, Istanbul, and New York City.  As a visual artist, Mikail does not want to limit himself to canvases.

As a visual artist, Mikail doesn’t want to limit himself to canvases! He has painted a wreckage part of the Airbus 310 on a project exhibited in Cologne/Bonn Airport. One of his recent collaborations has been with the mineral water brand, Gerolsteiner with the Mikail Akar Artist Edition, where Mikail’s art was printed on more than 17 million water bottles.   The young artist gained notable attention with his work being auctioned for good causes such as the “Art Helps to Give” campaign.  He has also participated in charity events in Turkey to help local people during the earthquake in 2020 with the Civil Protection authority AFAD.

Upcoming projects for the young creator include painting a series of classic cars going on a roadshow in the near future. In addition, he is working to create a 165 ft. (50 meter) long canvas painting for a secret project! Despite his adventures as a creative artist, Mikail Akar is going to school in Cologne with his parents and two siblings.
