Ricardo Salamanca is no doubt a digital Dumbledore. This talented Chilean artist blends his passions for photography and digital graphic design to create images bursting with imagination. These amazing manipulations are guaranteed to give life to luster-lacking living room walls with their surreal qualities.

Ricardo Salamanca creates his works by photographing a series of images, uploading them onto a computer and layering and manipulating them there. The resulting products are simply fantastical; viewers see Salamanca's head transform into a Rubik's cube and a circus bear in a bear costume.

These Ricardo Salamanca pieces are seriously surreal.
