Nazife Bilgin Hazar, a housewife-turned-muralist, was encouraged by her family to pursue an art degree ten years ago, and she hasn’t stopped painting walls since.
“I’m turning 58 in August,” Nazife Bilgin Hazar tells TRT World. “I went to university when I was 49.”
Hazar had been a housewife with a high school diploma until then, but encouraged by her sons Cihan and Can, who are now 33 and 27 respectively, she decided to take the plunge.
“I had seen them study through the eighth grade, so I wouldn’t be neglecting them,” Hazar says.
