Hulis Mavruk was born in Southern Turkey on July 4, 1952. A self-taught artist, Mavruk has been painting professionally since the age of 6, providing him with the means to continually refine his technique. In Turkey, he had a gallery and portrait studio on Incirlik Air Force Base, where U.S. Air Force officers actually paid him to do their portraits.
Mavruk's respect for the African American community dates from this period, when many of his customers were African American Air Force officers. Since moving to the United States in 1972, he has embraced the African American community by painting images portraying African American leaders, religious ideals, and family life. Mavruk believes that his work can inspire young African Americans to take pride in their heritage and try to emulate their leaders.

I made a purchase then
I made a purchase then later received a notice that my purchase was cancelled because the artwork was not in stock. This was very disappointing. I would have expected to be told on the front end that the product was not in stock prior to purchase.
I completely understand your concerns. Unfortunately, sometimes our inventory is off and in this instance, the publisher of the print discontinued the art print as well which left us no choice but to issue you a full refund. We sincerely apologize for any frustration this incident may have caused you and we truly appreciate you for giving us the opportunity to be of service.
