Ali Gulec

About the artist

No scary pirate flags here; rather, Ali’s skulls are upbeat, inviting designs that won’t leave you shaking in your shoes.

Ali Gulec is an illustrator and designer based out of Istanbul. With bold colors with a touch of attitude, his works shake up the typical art palate to offer original and fun designs. Ali’s collection, in particular, redefines how we normally think about skulls and bones.

No scary pirate flags here; rather, Ali’s skulls are upbeat, inviting designs that won’t leave you shaking in your shoes. Playful combinations of geometric shapes, flowers, animals, nostalgic illustrations, and careful collage work can be found in each skull, along with hidden details that’ll leave you gazing into the empty eyes of each piece!

Apart from personal projects, Ali’s also the face behind “ikiiki design studio” which offers original design solutions and consulting to both Turkish and international brands.
