Spanish-based artist Antonio Mora creates digitally manipulated photographs that resemble surrealist masterpieces. Whether taking inspiration from artists like Rene Magritte or Salvador Dali, the images defy convention and superimpose human face captures with stunning landscape views.

Using the worldwide web as his medium, the artist collects face and landscape imagery that he later manipulates into new compositions. Once completed, the art works become his very own translation of modern surrealism.

Antonio Mora's works rely on unexpected image pairings that blend "the lower half of human faces with waterfalls, cityscapes and desert rocks for a result that is beautifully dreamlike and timeless". The artist's surrealist photographs are nostalgic and pay homage to the famed talents that came before him.
