First of all, who is Aykut Aydoğdu?
Aykut Aydoğdu was born in 1986 in Ankara. He studied Fine Arts in high school. During his university years, he studied Graphic Design at Hacettepe.
After graduating, he worked as an art director in advertising agencies for a while.
Today, he continues his career as an independent illustrator. In other words, in addition to his own projects, he also receives domestic and foreign special design works such as movie posters or magazine covers.
Stating that he likes to try different things in terms of both technique and content, the artist does not hesitate to go to the mysterious but strange side of the border from time to time.
Women, flowers and animals, an ensemble that could be the most common, in the mind of Aykut Aydoğdu (Turkey) becomes surreal scenes full of provocation.
His digital illustrations make nature and women convey a seductive mystery, an ironic game with loneliness and sadness that fits perfectly with his determined use of color.
Aykut Aydoğdu generates images that tend to connect the collective unconscious with that other, personal, ours, that self with which we all have, sometimes, the feeling of carrying, and other times, that of being we who carry it; characters that exude isolation and melancholy, who meet at that moment when the real and the fictional come together; managing emotions, transmitting delusions.
That he gives off nonconformity is evident, that the everyday also slips him, and even so, the surrealist sequences of him are acceptable, even by minds little given to imagination; as if, no matter how much he does not agree with the prevailing norm, he cannot completely get rid of it.
With his digital tools he is able to perfectly imitate manual technique, his oil textures certify it, or his graphite simulations attest to it.
Dramatic effect in Aykut Aydoğdu’s Works
Each of Aykut Aydoğdu’s dramatic drawings, mainly involving women, was created in a digital environment. The details in the works and the preferred language of expression are really impressive.
Our artist, who beautifully conveys the difficulties experienced by women in Turkey and around the world, into digital art, is very successful in conveying the dramatic details of her inner world into her designs.
Women, flowers and animals are the protagonists in Turkish digital artist Aykut Aydoğdu’s surrealist paintings. The most ordinary elements of Aykut Aydoğdu in the mind turn into a series of surrealistic scenes.
Digital images that provoke and mimic romantic moments, erotic but also tears and grief. His surrealist drawings allow nature and women to convey a seductive mystery. There is even an ironic play with loneliness and sadness.
Another feature of Aydoğdu’s work is his ability to perfectly imitate manual technique with his digital tools. And it gets the texture of oil. It was like a surrealist painting. There are also graphite simulations.
Based in Istanbul, this Turkish illustrator has developed a unique style. Its oil-like digital illustrations are easy to reflect, as they reflect the most intense and incomprehensible emotions.
Incredibly real-looking, his surrealist drawings are full of symbolism. They highlight a heavy and almost morbid image of the painful and romantic idea of love. The interplay between the female figure, love, bewilderment and nature returns to the beginning of any emotion and transforms her surrealistic paintings into mirrors of everyday life.
