Hugo Rivera Gallery is located in Laguna Beach, California. We display original artwork from several talented Southern California contemporary artists, with an emphasis in the figurative and abstract.
Eren Alptekin is a Newport Beach-based contemporary artist specializing in mixed media. To create her abstract compositions, she maximizes the use of texture and bold imagery to visualize her unique experiences and observations. Eren’s intentionality, imaginative faculty, and traditional techniques are the driving force behind her art. With an expressive visual style, Eren strives to invoke a sense of inspiration and freshness by juxtaposing familiar landmarks and vistas with striking color and grandeur.
Eren earned her Master of Science in Architecture (M. Arch.) from Columbia University in New York City, after receiving her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Architecture, from Istanbul Technical University in Istanbul, Turkey. Eren’s relationship with the arts has evolved over the years but her structural roots always shine through.
Eren has exhibited her work in numerous galleries and juried art shows throughout California. Currently, she is represented by Hugo Rivera Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA and exhibits regularly at the Laguna Art-A-Fair. She finds no shortage of inspiration at home thanks to the rich urban life and natural splendor of Southern California, and is already looking forward to her next endeavor.
