This month’s art­work in­cludes a fe­male war­rior, the un­dead, a Dis­ney an­tag­o­nist, X-Men, sci-fi in­sects, faeries, an ice queen and a man with a wolf’s head.

Lo­ca­tion: Turkey Web:­­ Email: de­signtu@hot­ Soft­ware: Pho­to­shop Murat cre­ates art that blurs the line be­tween fact and fic­tion, a fu­sion be­tween what he ob­serves and what he imag­ines. “Na­ture is a big in­spi­ra­tion,” Murat says, “and I also en­joy de­pict­ing my dreams. 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.”
