AYKUT AYDOGDU 2/3 –Despite his work is purely digital, drawn or painted with a tablet in Adobe Photoshop, he is able to capture the complexity of the human soul. It‘s hard to believe there’s not a single paintbrush involved in the creating of his artworks. He is surrealist, his portfolio is extensive, diverse in themes and styles and he let the viewer decide what’s real and what’s not. Between his artworks, there are frequent women accompanied by flowers and birds, who fly or combine with the anatomy of the female characters, but sometimes is inspired by Series of Asian and American television, making infantile characters. Another aspect on his digital painting is the apparent nostalgia.

– Aykut shows an interest in pop culture as well, creates homages to famous television shows like Breaking Bad, and cult movies like Fight Club and Lèon. We share some of his illustrations as an invitation to discover more of his talent.
