“Liquid Colors”: The Superb Colorful and Surreal Collages by Farid Sukuro

According to an artist: “I am Fred from LearnFromFred.com, and I have been teaching people Photoshop and how to create beautiful artworks since 2018. In the last 3 years over 30k students have enrolled into my classes. My goal is to teach people how to realize their creative ideas using Photoshop.”

“I never planned to become an artist or do anything even close to that, I even thought that it is a bit foolish since I didn’t see a career path in art. But it all happened by itself, I started creating images out of boredom as a hobby and slowly transformed into a profession,” Farid told Beyond Photography.

“My favourite technique is probably Smudging (Smudge Tool). It helps to make objects liquid and stretch them, gives the artwork painting look.”

“I think Photoshop is a separate medium, probably as most people call it “Photomanipulation”, not an image, neither graphic design nor a painting. It is a mix of everything.”

Korean Artist Goes Viral For Transforming Herself Into Mind-Bending Optical Illusions Without Any Photoshop

When you’re an artist, everything is a canvas. Don’t believe me?

Meet Dain Yoon, a South Korean classically trained painter who uses her own body as a canvas. You might remember us covering her extraordinarily intricate art that makes people look twice at it to fully understand that there’s a face or entire body hiding behind it.

Since then, Yoon’s been hard at work, so here’s a handful of her new art pieces, neatly packed and presented in a curated list below.

And while you’re down there, why not give your favorite ones an upvote and leave a comment on what you thought about them!

More: Instagram h/t: boredpanda

Dain Yoon is a South Korean artist who works with a bit of an unorthodox canvas—the human body. Most of the time it’s her own, but sometimes it’s someone else’s.

Regardless, besides the interesting choice of canvas, she’s also versed in all things illusions. Much of her work involves hiding the face so well that people often end up trying to figure out what they are seeing in the first place.

Yoon has always enjoyed painting, it was something that she felt best at, which landed her in some of the most prestigious art schools in South Korea. Everything from scenography to theatrical design to special effects makeup—she did it all, and continues surprising her numerous fans across her social media.

And no, this ain’t photoshop.

“My everyday experiences and point of view of our world is what inspires my illusion series,” Yoon explained the inspiration behind her mesmerizing illusionary art.

“I think the reason my work sparks the reactions it does is because I make sure my work is inspired by true feeling, and I am happy that people are there to receive and be affected by them. I am a very sensitive person and my emotions have always been the source of my inspiration. And painting is the language I express myself in, in the same way as a musician uses music to communicate their emotions.”

Yoon continued: “I get inspired by my feelings, both emotional and physical. Since both of my parents worked day jobs, I had a lot of time to think on my own when I was young. Although everyone feels emotions, I was overly sensitive, to an abnormal extent. So when I started painting from a young age, back when I used to paint on canvases and paper, the subject matter of my work was almost always about people and emotions.”

“I always try to be a better artist than the one I was yesterday. It inspires me to keep my focus on further developing my art.”

As you might have guessed, Yoon’s art is every bit challenging, but it is by no means a bad thing as it’s exactly what drives her to be the best she can be.

“Every art piece has definitely been a challenge. I actually like the word ‘challenge’ a lot, I always try to do new things, and never remain stagnant. I really work hard and I think my life and career have developed a lot because of it. As time went on, my perspective on art has grown, and it led me to do things on a bigger scale, and different types of mediums as well. And I definitely look forward to many more opportunities to come.”

Believe it or not, there have been times when Yoon would go out wearing one of her illusions. Like, people could see it. So, we asked her how people reacted and she had this to say:

“It was very different depending on the cities and countries. The first time was in Seoul, I remember the majority of people were scared of me,” laughed Yoon. “The warmest welcome and recognition was in New York, though!”

So, we’ve pushed Yoon into a corner and asked her to choose one favorite design from the myriad of pieces that she has done over the years: “Most of my works have received lots of coverage around the world. But, if I had to pick one, I would say my ‘Hair Nails’ because it brought me on the Ellen Show.”

“Also, I would say my art performance at Seoul Art Center. This performance was an extended version of my illusion body paintings. I wanted to do my own performance for a long time and when I had the chance, I went for it.”

“I composed my own team. Brought in a choreographer, composer, cinematographer, designer, and 12 performers, including myself. It was a great, new challenge.”

“pervARTed”: This Artist Creates Naughty But ‘Safe For Work’ Photo Manipulations

Johnny Smith attended Film school at the University of Texas and has since moved to LA. A script writer, actor, and producer, Smith turned to digital Collage out of frustration for a creative outlet which was more immediate.

“I majored in film and television in college, with a minor in theater, so the idea of storytelling and performing, in a any capacity, was always a desire of mine. I moved to Los Angeles in 2004 but spent most of my 20s dicking around and not pushing myself to do anything beyond drinking and hanging out. That got boring quickly, so in my free time, I started taking photo booth photos at the Rite Aid down the street.

I made different facial expressions as the photo booth snapped photos of me. I would then go home, cut out my faces and paste them on different illustrations I drew, such as a Mama bird feeding her baby birds, a pigeon pooping in front of another disgusted pigeon and so forth. That is where my collage making started before I made the transition to digital. For me, this was a hobby that was an escape from the monotony that had been my life. It also made my friends laugh, so that inspired me further. Sometimes they would join me and we would take photo booth photos together. I then would cut and paste our faces on different animals in different scenarios and gift them the final product. It was a lot of fun!” he told Beyond Photography.

“In America, sex is taboo and is “dangerous” and I don’t think it has to be. Sex is fun, it’s physically healthy and it feels amazing. Plus, it is how all of us are here today. Sex is the best!

With my art, I was being provocative and it started out as a test to see what I could post and get away with on Instagram. It then ended up becoming a recurring theme. I like sex, I like when people have sex, I love people being comfortable with their bodies and I love celebrating that in my art. And I think about sex all the time because I can’t wait until the next time I get to have it! I am a guy who is very driven by the promise of sex,” he added.

Digital Artist Creates Magical And Surreal Images From Architecture And Fragments Of Nature

Digital art is all around us. A lot of artists create artwork by merging photographs, creating surreal images. And that includes this French artist, Zak Eazy. Zak uses animals, architecture, and fragments of nature to create mystical fantasy illustrations that look like they’ve escaped dreamland. The artist also uses a lot of well-known monuments and places them where they shouldn’t be, creating a parallel, magical world.

“I’ve always loved art, creation, and architecture. My father introduced me to it when I was a child. I drew surrealistic and fantastic worlds with him. It has been 10 years since I discovered Photoshop. I became a graphic designer 10 years ago and a digital artist since 2019. What I like is the freedom to create new worlds, to transmit a message through my creations, and to arouse questions when people look at my creations. People give my designs many interpretations, ranging from a fairyland to an apocalyptic world. I find it interesting to see the multitude of interpretations of my ‘mysterious’ creations. Each creation represents a part of my life, moods, events… I’m very inspired by nature, it is my main source of inspiration. I am also inspired by my many travels, what I discover with each trip, new countries, new cultures, style or way of seeing things,” Zak told Bored Panda.

Artist Creates Fantastic Surreal Edits Using Animals, Plants, People, And Objects

According to Ingo Lindmeier: “Almost all of my works begin with a passion for the surreal. Often accompanied by playing with words, the sense of playing finds its way out of my head through Adobe Photoshop into the colorful world of images. Sometimes brightly playful, sometimes critically disturbing, different voices find their place in my creations. Fairy tales and myths inspire me as much as music, nature and art and are sources of my inspiration.”

This Artist Uses Photography And Photoshop To Escape Reality

“My Neighbor” – Exploring Forced Perspective

According to Hayley Roberts: “Creative photography gave me a way to slip out of this world and into the magical worlds I dream about. Previously I’d never believed I was a creative person, but these tools gave me a way to express the things I was feeling; I’ve certainly never had success at drawing or painting. It’s amazing to think that with the right medium, we can all create incredible things. If you haven’t found your medium, I hope that you do.

I taught myself photography and Photoshop through the use of fun projects. I’d decide what method of creative photography I wanted to explore next and then create an image around it. I’ve now explored over 100 techniques and written tutorials about each of them to help other photographers. It’s an enjoyable way to learn and stay motivated, and I’d love to share these projects with you.

Models: Elanora Wolffe, Maddy Webster, Bettie Butcher, and me.”

This Guy Lost A Job In The Pandemic, Now Focused On Creating His Own Art

According to David Masters: “Most of the images I create develop in my mind as a result of feelings I experience at certain moments of my life.

I’m not very good at communicating my feelings, so I have a genuine need to express my stories through the art I create. The feelings can be embarrassing or even childlike, and by utilizing these emotions, I can make some pretty interesting art. When a person views my art, I want it to stir up thoughts and feelings. For me, if that does not happen, then it, as a piece of art, was unsuccessful. I hope you like my work.”
