Asir Guler; He said that he was born in Muş in 1973 and that he learned the art of wood carving from his elder brother Tahsin Güler, who is also a master. Asir Guler; I started woodworking at the age of 7 in Izmir. I am in this business today. I've been doing this for 40 years. Our workshop is located in Çiğli district of İzmir. I've been in all areas of this business for years, so to speak. Our range is very wide. There is a statue. There are Traditional Arts. It has relief style, calligraphy. We also work in a modern style. I have done antique restoration works for about 10 years. From there, we had a lot of savings. Over the years, these accumulations began to multiply one after the other. I had the thought of transferring this to those who want it. For this, I opened a course in my own workshop. I currently have about 30 trainees. We tried to do as good a job as possible with these trainees. We started the foundations of the exhibition we opened today 6 -7 months ago. We have tried to do almost all kinds of work. We tried to touch on many things that happened in Anatolia in the past and today on wood. There are nearly 25 works of 100 of our trainees here. We also understand from the interest of those who come and go that yes, we have made such a rich variety. It is impressive that such richness is combined in wood, especially. We see this in the reactions we get. In this respect, we will try to continue this channel," he said.
