Ali Gulec is a illustrator and co-owner of Ikiiki Design Studio based in Istanbul. Although his main job is in t-shirt design, he likes to create artwork for a project titled The Message. The project presents skulls, constructed with various objects and scenes.
Gulec explains: “Although I illustrate many subjects with a little touch of humor, skulls are my most known and appreciated ones. 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”
