I can’t say I know exactly what this type of art is called, but I personally have dubbed it ‘Freestyle Photoshopping’. To me it’s a practice of exercise in flow state and free association by layering about 20 random images I find on the internet. I begin to manipulate and begin to build a scene. There is something about symmetry that is pleasing to the eye and allows me to find interesting shapes and compositions. This opens up opportunities to explore new and surreal landscapes by following all the happy accidents that arise.”
