Dolce Paganne a.k.a Ceren Aksungur is an artist (from Turkey) based in Antwerp. After working in advertising agencies as an art director at Istanbul she decides to leave the office life behind and follow her own illustration path. Graduated from masters at Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp (2017), she currently works as a painter and a freelance illustrator.

Artist focus in her surreal drawings, on ambiguous situations of daily life where she plays with human/animal figures in a psychedelic manner. By following the path of ancient occult myths, she seeks to create her own visual esoteric language to tell some new stories.
