This Artist Makes You Wonder What Is Real and What Is Not

Art is the expression of imagination and creativity. Art is taught in colleges and universities but only the most naturally talented individuals will ever be successful.

Erik Johansson doesn’t have formal training in photography or even Photoshop. He taught himself and quickly excelled and mastered photo retouching. He creates surreal artistic pieces that astound and stretches your brain as it tries to comprehend these impossible images.

Johansson creates his illusions by first planning what the end result should look like. He uses a high number of photos and creates layers in Photoshop while retouching every aspect of it until he’s happy with the resulting piece.
