Erik Johansson's incredible photoshop art and illusions

Erik Johansson is a self-taught Swedish photographer and retouch artist living in Berlin. He creates amazing works inspired by Salvador Dali, René Magritte and M.C. Escher. Realizing one photo from idea to final piece takes him from a few weeks to several months, and results are magnificent. Erik himself describes his style as 'surreal ideas realized in a realistic way with a touch of humor'.

Besides edited photos, he creates street illusions sometimes. For instance, here is Mind Your Step-illusion created in Stockholm in 2011. This large, 32 x 18 meters (105′ x 59′ feet) print looked like a hole right down in the ground from right position.
