Bora Başkan is a illustration artist, illustrator, graphic designer and musician. He works as a freelance artist and as an art director. In addition to numerous internal group exhibitions, Başkan has participated in solo exhibitions at Öktem&Aykut Gallery, Torun, Ankara and PAKT galleries in Turkey.
In his artistic production, Başkan aims for a deep, metaphysical understanding of questions such as: “What does it mean to be a living entity? What is the sensation that belongs to a living entity? What creates the sensation, and what are the factors that affect the evaluation of sensation?” His works can thus “transform from a very personal matter to a universal one that covers all living creatures’ way of and reason for living”.
