Surreal Digital Portraits by Aykut Aydoğdu

Aykut Aydoğdu is a fantastic Turkish illustrator situated in Istanbul, Turkey. He depicts troubling scenes and characters, which transmit an odd sensuality which involves us and carries us into a whole world filled with mystery and surrealism.

The Turkish artist and graphic designer Aykut Aydoğdu shows some engaging and graceful portraits, leading us right into a unreal world full of symbols and visual metaphors. Even though his portraits are relatively realistic, his illustrations convey a heavy and almost melancholic feeling on how painful it can be to love someone. The most frequent subjects in his works of art are women which are interacting with various elements of nature.

Even if you examine his work extensively you will not believe there is not a single paintbrush involved in the making of these portraits. All Aykut Aydoğdu’s work is purely digital, drawn or painted with a tablet in Adobe Photoshop.
