Lilliputs: Hakan Keles Reimagines Gulliver’s Travels In Turkish Cities Today

Turkish illustrator Hakan Keleş is creating a fun and quirky series titled ‘Lilliputs’ where he imagines the secret life of giants in the streets of various Turkish cities he travels. This is an ongoing project you can follow Hakan’s Instagram account. ‘I am an architect, academician and illustrator living in Turkey. I started to draw big characters on street photos I took with my smartphone, named ‘Lilliputs series’. The name comes from the novel ‘Gulliver’s Travels’, the city of dwarfs. Here, we, real people, become dwarfs. Some of them are kind of monsters, some of them are influenced from real people and the others are a bit humorous. They are from different urban areas I visited in Turkey.’ – Hakan Keles
