About Atlas Arts & Gifts


Hi, I am Aykut Gurcaglar, professor of art history, curator, artist and founder of Atlas Arts. Atlas Arts is a Toronto-based online design shop selling gift items, stationery, accessories and art prints that feature my original art with reflections from Toronto’s urban culture and heritage.

My passion lies in capturing cityscapes and urban culture in my paintings. When you want to decorate your home, when you want to buy yourself a coffee mug, when you want to celebrate the special moments of your friends or loved ones with a greeting card reflecting the vibes of Toronto, your choices are limited. Atlas Arts is here with an alternative vision. It is dedicated to visually reflect Toronto’s urban culture and heritage on stationery, homeware, gifts and original artworks.
