Galip Tekin:PORTFOLIO —
9/5 — 29/5 2012
As one of the most prominent Turkish comics artists, Galip Tekin’s peculiar stories evolved their elements of humor to science-fiction in time, acquiring the most unique style of shading. Tekin’s creativity definitely shines with his inimitable story-telling, as he creates narrratives that are free of space and time; as well as his incomparable technique in shading, which he developed and perfected through the years. His line has matured with surreal stories and fantastic images, using elements of fantasy, horror, and tension, which allow a glimpse of the dark side.
Tekin started drawing for the comics magazine Gırgır and he learned the finer points of the comics profession through Oğuz Aral, who was the pioneer at the time. Eventually, he launched his own magazine named Lak Lak. He has drawn almost in all the comics magazines afterwards, and his stories have finally been compilated as albums in 2011.
