NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cano Ozgener, engineer, entrepreneur, patron, and now artist, has published a beautiful coffee table book of his artwork.

It is an art book—and much more. Its purpose is to be an inspiration for people battling serious health issues and to encourage them to consider art. It is evidence of the saving power of art.

Cano Ozgener is the story of how Ozgener became an artist and founder of OZ Arts Nashville – after battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma, stem cell replacement therapy, and open-heart surgery.

"Life made me an artist … at age 70," says Ozgener. "My own experiences taught me that art will invigorate your soul and strengthen you for the physical and mental fights you face when you are challenged by life."

The book captures the diversity of Cano's portfolio inspired by his early years in Turkey and his background in engineering. 

Among other artistic styles, the book showcases Pi Synesthesia, Cano's original conceptual series based on the numeric constant Pi. The wide-ranging series includes paintings, wall installations, and large-scale sculptures.

Cano Ozgener is a high-end coffee table book of 144 pages and retails for $59.95 and has an introductory price of $49.95 for a limited time. All sales benefit OZ Arts Nashville, the nonprofit contemporary arts center founded by Ozgener in 2013.  For more information about Cano Ozgener, his art, or to order the new book, please visit www.CanoOzgener.com
