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.

If you like Aykut’s style I definitely recommend to take a look at his Behance profile: the images below are just a small selection of his work!

    Hello, this message is for Aykut Aydoğdu. I am a musician from Southern California playing in a jazz .quartet called Sweet Dreams Priscilla. We love your art work, and I was curious if you would allow us to use one of your paintings as the cover for our vinyl album pressing, and of so, how much that would cost us. Your response would be very appreciated, thank you! Looking forward to hearing back.
