Finnish photographer and digital artist Antti Karppinen has a vivid imagination, and it’s combined with 23 years of experience in Photoshop. When these two come together, anything is possible. His motto is “Imagine anything” and indeed, whatever he imagines, he can turn into an artwork. He shared with us some of his digital art, along with the source photos he created it from. So, you can see for yourself what imagination and skill can do when they get together.
Antti is both a photographer and a retoucher, and photography is always a starting point of his work. But, “then the creative retoucher kicks in,” and this lets him turn his photos into completely new works of art. As he writes, his first version of Photoshop was 3.0, so he’s been following the software’s development almost from the beginning. His skill grew together with his favorite software, and here are some of the works that resulted from the 23-year experience:
When he isn’t creating digital artwork, Antti is focused on portrait photography, and he is also an awarded commercial photographer. If you liked what you saw and you’d like to see more of his work, check it out on his website, Facebook page, Instagram and YouTube channel.
