Aykut Aydoğdu is a graphic designer and illustrator living in Istanbul, Turkey. The artwork he posts on Instagram as Aykutmaykut is both haunting and incredibly beautiful, and people all over the world are taking notice. Because Aydoğdu's creations are so detailed, it's hard to believe he only uses platforms like Adobe Photoshop to bring them to life. If you look closely, however, you can tell his surreal images are indeed digital productions with influences from nature and human life.
Occasionally his artwork borders on creepy, but it's mostly just stunning and thought-provoking. Some of the artist's pieces may even make you queasy — but in a good way. No matter what reaction they stir up, the weirdest works from Aykut Aydoğdu are still somehow beautifully alluring.
