One word: Mindblown. That’s the first word that comes to mind as soon as I went through the Behance portfolio of Mehmet Doruk Erdem, a ‘Freelance’ Industrial Designer & CG Artist
from Istanbul, Turkey.
Are you wondering why I am writing about a Behance portfolio which has no relevance to two wheels? I’m afraid you are right. A few projects of this Turkish designer are pure works of art (I guess we should be glad they’re still art, or should we?) conceptualising motorcycles around brands like BMW, Harley Davidson and Alfa Romeo with just one wheel. Astonishing, isn’t it?
With an eye for the minutest of details of the brand being profiled as well on his personal projects, Mr. Erdem’s work is widely appreciated and applauded worldwide including the prestigious brands being profiled.
His latest personal project called “BMW Phoenix Concept” is a futuristic yet retro looking, road going, turbocharged, twin cylinder, air cooled, single seater motorcycle which doesn’t look too much in the distant future but boy it’s a looker!
