I'm Basak KILICBEYLI, a visual artist & graphic designer from Istanbul, Turkey. I was born in 1992 in Moscow, Russia. I'm freelancing since 2015, and I graduated from Graphic Design BFA at Yeditepe University in 2017. I had worked for many non-profit projects and organizations in Turkey.

Ever since, I moved to Montpellier, France, I had chance to travel around Europe. This experience has helped me to reinvent my skills and creative process. I noticed that I have the potential for more than graphic design. 

Now, I'm MFA student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia, PA.

My works are mostly done digitally. But there are hand-drawn artworks, particularly in illustrations, as well. My work spectrum gets relatively wide: besides the identity design and branding I do illustrations, relief printing, 2D animation, found object installations and assemblages.

Please feel free to contact for anything. Looking forward to collaborate with you.
