Surreal Digital Paintings by Aykut Aydoğdu, Istanbul, Turkey.
There’s a deep sense of mystery in the illustrations of Aykut Aydoğdu, a freelance illustrator from Istanbul, Turkey. Firstly it’s his technique. Even when you study his work thoroughly you won’t believe there’s not a single paintbrush involved in the creating of these pieces. Well, there is one, but it’s a digital one! All Aykut’s work is purely digital, drawn or painted with a tablet in Adobe Photoshop.
Second of all there’s mystery in the scenes and people Aykut portrays. Often there’s a sense of surrealism in his work, letting the viewer decide what’s real and what’s not. In his varied portfolio Aykut shows an interest in pop culture as well, creating homages to famous television shows like Breaking Bad, and cult movies like Fight Club and Lèon. It’s his portrait work that grabs me most though, stunning depictions of people that cross the border of a surreal dreamworld and reality.

VULKAN MAG – Editorial with collaboration of talented artist Louise Mertens, New York, NY, USA
”LOUISE HAS BEEN MAKING COLLAGES SINCE SHE WAS YOUNG, MAKING IT SUCH A TRADEMARK OF HERSELF. SHE ADMIRES THE SOPHISTICATED QUALITY OF JAPANESE ART. SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN INSPIRED BY THE FEMALE BODY, THE MYSTERIOUS AND THE INCOMPREHENSIBLE. THERE IS A SIMPLICITY IN THE CONTOURS, IN THE MINIMALISM OF THE LINES, IN ITS EYE FOR DETAIL. “THE SUBTLE BUT IMPORTANT DETAILS FORCE YOU TO LOOK WITH MORE PATIENCE,” SHE SAYS. “AND PATIENCE IS REALLY IMPORTANT IN MY WORK.” SHE LIKES TO STEP INTO DIALOGUE WITH FASHION IMAGES THROUGH HIDING AND ALTERING PARTS OF HER CHARACTERS. MANIPULATION IN HIS PUREST FORM.”
