Illustration // Thursday, April 19, 2012
Based in Istanbul, Turkey, illustrator and graphic designer Bora Baskan graduated with a degree in graphic design from Marmara University and has since worked as both a freelance artist and an art director. His abstract compositions synthesize elements of 20th century abstract and cubist art with a street-wise urban sensibility. "I tend to explain myself better with abstraction," says Baskan. "I feel that tangible images limit me."
