Can Aksoy is a London-based interdisciplinary artist, photographer, filmmaker, and avid storyteller with a particular interest in the horror genre, avant-garde cinema, and psychoanalysis. With a diverse background spanning architecture, digital design, animation, and film production, Can Aksoy's iconoclastic approach to art and visual storytelling employs various tools to craft compelling stories. He is inspired by a world where all-encompassing visual experiences have the power to influence the human psyche beyond comprehension.
In 2019, Aksoy founded his creative studio in London to explore new ways of integrating architecture and digital design with storytelling. He collaborates globally with creative minds, brands, organisations, and research groups on crafting abstract and cinematic narratives and visualising alternative realities—from concept development and art direction to prototyping and production.
In 2019, Aksoy's neo-noir short film "Silencio" was nominated for Best Experimental Film at the Oxford International Short Film Festival (OXISFF). In 2020, he collaborated with London-based creative director, dancer and scenographer Shania Selvendran on the short VR film "Hoax Meeting", which was officially selected and screened at the Desert Festival in Australia. In 2022, Aksoy collaborated with costume designer Ada Zanditon and Los Angeles-based actress Lauren Babrée on "Psyche", an experimental psychological short film exploring Freudian notions of the unconscious, repression, and dreams. Additionally, his photographic work has been featured in publications, including Vogue Magazine's PhotoVogue platform.
Aksoy received a Master of Architecture (M.Arch) in Advanced Architectural Design from Oxford Brookes University and a Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey).
He currently resides and works on digital photography, visual design, screenwriting, and filmmaking in London, England.
