Feathers of cobalt blue

Artist Gizem Vural, who is from Istanbul and lives in New York City, is featured in the Spring 2021 issue of Audubon magazine. She has been busy creating images of blue jays. The cobalt blue plumage wooed her. “This specific hue that the blue jay has mesmerized me.”

“For inspiration, Vural looks to abstract artists such as Paul Klee, Agnes Pelton, and Julie Mehretu. John James Audubon is a new influence, creative and otherwise. ‘When I found out about his work I fell in love. I have so much interest now in birdwatching.’”
