KaldÄ±rÄ±m DestanÄ± â€“ KaldÄ±rÄ±mlar Kurdunun HayatÄ± 1 – 6
Who is Masist GÃ¼l?
Masist GÃ¼l (1947-2003) with his strong physique was a Turkish actor who played obscure roles in more then 300 hundred movies. In his private life, unknown to the outside world, he was an extraordinary artist. He produced a large amount of collages, drawings and poetry. During the 80â€™s he conceived and made by hand, using a periodical comic-book format, a series of 6 books with the title Kaldirim Destani â€“ Kaldirimlar Kurdunun Hayati / Pavement Myth â€“ The Life of the Pavementâ€™s Wolf. Bent 001 will be the first existing reproductions of these originals. The story is based on GÃ¼l’s own life. It is written in Turkish. As all the texts are in rhyme they cannot be translated without significant loss of meaning. The narrative takes place between 1905 and 1978 in Adana. It is told as a flashback. The protagonist called Kaldirim Fahri / Pavement Fahri is a tough-guy, a mirror image of Bent Pavement Myth.
