Taner laments the marginalization not only of miniature art but of all traditional Turkish art forms, overshadowed as they have been by the modern arts. His mission is to resurrect miniature art for a wider public and to restore its place in modern Turkish art. In the world of miniature art there are no strict rules to be followed and as such Taner believes it is a traditional art form readily applicable and adaptable to contemporary life. With his painting he aims not only to restore the tradition of miniature art in Turkey but to bring this traditional art form to a wider European audience.
