I’m an avid fan of cinema and music. All of these elements find their way into my work.”
The freelancer from Ankara is an art graduate, but digitally he’s completely self-taught. He’s worked in everything from animation and video games, to book illustrations and album covers. It’s from his personal work, however, he takes the most pleasure.
“I mostly create surrealistic fantasy and minimalist work for myself, without worrying much about selling them. I take pride in following my passions and spending time honing my craft.” 1 Secret Way “This picture was inspired by Jack and the Beanstalk. When I was child, I wanted to go into the sky. So I drew it. The character finds rabbits in the sky’s cloud plant. I was keen to create a strange atmosphere.”
2 A journey to the tal e “I wanted to paint an intense scene in this picture. It’s about a little boy and his friend Bruin escaping from monsters on a fairytale journey, in which they ran into in the secret forest. It was really fun working on this piece.”
