A Manipulative Man.
Erik Johansson was born April 1985 in Sweden and is currently living in Prague. Unlike the other artists who are or will be featured on my blog, Erik is a photographer who uses photo-manipulation software like Photoshop to produce his extraordinary images. His art is classified as surrealism despite having originally begun as normal photographs. There are no stock photos in Erik’s personal work, just complex combinations using his own photography and his considerable Photoshop skills. It’s a long process and he only creates 6-8 new images a year, excluding commissioned works. More of Erik Johansson’s manipulated images can be found at his website.
If you are curious as to how he creates his amazing pictures, look at the Behind the Scenes Videos The lesson illustrating the ‘split road’ image above, is fascinating! http://www.erikjohanssonphoto.com/behind-the-scenes
