Hilmi Baskurt R. A. is a Melbourne artist and teacher.
Hilmi is known for his deep technical knowledge, artistic
fervour and unquenchable desire to explore the infinite
possibilities of oil paint.
I have depicted him like an apostle, in the studio surrounded
by a luminous halo, as he is known for his supreme teaching - endlessly inspiring and educating his students.
