Mind-Bending Pics by Erik Johansson

Maybe it’s hard to find someone like this Photoshop master Erik Johannsson who creates optical illusions and photo manipulations. If you would like to see him working on his work, you can check out his videos.  In these awesome behind-the-scenes videos, however, we get to see how he actually creates some of his artwork.

His videos show how the real and imaginary worlds can blend seamlessly in his photos, aside from his extensive use of Photoshop. It is so mind-bending and life-like that his work sometimes seems like magic.

Johannsson had to photograph different elements of the photos in real life for most of his surreal photos, before blending and layering them in Photoshop.

To check out more of his amazing surreal images and wonderful optical illusions you should visit his website. There you can see some simple work but lead to magic, like a bottle or a roll of paper can be transformed into surreal artworks right before your eyes.
