Ali Gulec is an illustrator and co-owner of Ikiiki Design Studio, based in Istanbul. His day job is designing tshirts, but for fun, he uses a combination of traditional and digital collage to create beautiful skull art. Gulec discusses why he thinks his skulls have caught on:
“I believe people like my skulls because the contradictions such as life and death are much more obvious and visible in these pieces. Also, I have observed through the years that people are excited to see something resembling death doesn’t need to be scary and can be appealing for any person, even for my grandma :).”
Artist created, grandma approved. Can’t do better than that!
