Fethi Baba (Father Fethi) is one of the icons of Ortaköy Square. He is a distinguished cartoonist with many awards from all over the world, who has now dedicated himself to painting Ortaköy and the “cats” of Ortaköy.
The best thing you can take home from Istanbul is Fethi Baba’s paintings of Ortaköy, cats and other İstanbul landmarks. They are cheerful and the attention to detail is amazing. Everything is of course handmade.
Another amazing thing is the prices. Souvenirs start from 10 TL (2 USD)
I am pretty sure that you cannot find anything better at this price and will want to take some of these back home.
He’s just next to the mosque by the sea at weekends. He’s started to paint sea shells nowadays too.
