Los Angeles, CA - Metin Bereketli, the Los Angeles-based international artist known for his striking DIVERSITY-series of original paintings, has participated in the American Society of Young Musicians (ASYM) 11th Annual Spring Concert and Awards night with his richly expressive painting "Symphony."
Metin's autographed and hand-painted original canvass was placed on auction for $7000 dollars at the ASYM event held on June 5, 2003 night at House Blues in West Hollywood, California.
The non-profit ASYM is a dynamic organization led by its president Jarvee E. Hutcherson and boasts such stellar industry names on its Honorary Executive Committee as John Mellencamp, Whitney Houston, James Taylor, Madonna, Bonnie Raitt, Quincy Jones, Christina Aguilera, Tina Turner, Little Richard, George Clinton, Al Jarreau and many others.
The proceeds from ASYM's 11th Annual Spring Benefit Concert provides support for such worthwhile causes as shared housing referral program, low cost and no-cost dental assistance to young creators in need, legal and contractual consultation, artists workshops and invaluable scholarships for young talents.
"It was my pleasure to contribute to the success of such an important event," said Metin Bereketli, who regularly donates the proceedings of his original artwork and autographed reproduction sales to charities.
An internationally acclaimed Los Angeles based painter, Metin's contemporary works have been featured in galleries and exhibitions worldwide including the Smithsonian, Sotheby's Science Center, Paramount Pictures & Universal Studios and Hollywood & Highland. His style and generosity has earned him the esteem of many American leaders, such as Presidents Bush and Carter.
Metin's unique paintings can also be seen on many television programs including Friends, Frazier, ER, Becker, Felicity, Will & Grace, Chicago Hope, The Bold and The Beautiful, Passions, General Hospital, Party of Five, and several other TV and film sets.
