This is the amazing work of Erik Johansson, a photographer and retoucher from Sweden who works out of Germany. Johansson's impossible scenes are full of fantasy and magical realism and they remind of the mind boggling work of Belgian photographer Christophe Gilbert who has been featured on LD before. Trippy stuff.

Fernando Botero's usually genial subjects are comical, satirical and sardonic. And he has joined other contemporary artistic uber giants such as Picasso, Dali and Francis Bacon in paying tribute to the genius of Diego Velazquez. I find Botero's "fat" (to use the artist's own word) portrayals of some of the 17th century Spanish Master's most recognized and significant artwork involving royalty and court notables, jovially mischievous, vivacious and wildly entertaining. I think the work is Boterismo at it's very best!
