Graphic designer Marina Papi has the ability to transform an ordinary photograph into a surreal composition, simply by adding her illustrations into the mix.
The artist, who is based out of Rio de Janeiro, explains that this is her "attempt to write poetry without any words." Her work is indeed poetic, adding elements of imagination, spontaneity and playfulness to what would otherwise be a prosaic scene.
Papi is partial to rainbow-colored hues, using them to intensify landscapes, create entirely new characters or alter existing ones. A parachute becomes a bird, for instance, while a ball turns into a planet. Whether she's painting a child wandering in space or a group of flying jellyfish, Papi's work is a visual dream.
