                                                                     A Provocative and magic artist

                   Ody Saban reinvents the arabesques by painting large water-colours swarming with erotic or monstrous figures.”There are elements of both performance and prayer in my paintings. They revolve like dervishes, like the turkish architectures, poetry and music; like the cups of coffee in the grounds of which my mother used to read omens every day. In the Aegean sea, life is a maze. Without logic nor chance. Imaginary till paranoia. Magic.” Not alive, the Aegean sea: eternal!
