Malaysian artist Johnson Ting presents stunning creations in his latest series.

Though painted digitally, Johnson Ting masterfully emulates the look of smeared watercolor, giving his images an analog look in addition to its ethereal feel. It's evident to viewers that he starts out pieces as line illustrations and then paints over key details in a hyperrealistic fashion. This ultimately gives viewers a surreal experience as his images are trapped somewhere in between the imagined and something seemingly tangible.

Johnson Ting also takes the time to apply a looseleaf paper texture over his works, further enhancing the analog aesthetic of his pieces. Ting thus presents viewers with a variety of damsels caught somewhere between the real and imaginary.
