In visual art, the artistic manipulation of a photograph lies in a harmonious coexistence with that of the raw, original image.

Manipulating a photograph, nowadays, is not anymore associated with that negative connotation that once carried along with it. In visual art, the artistic manipulation of a photograph lies in harmonious coexistence with that of the raw, original image.

The before and after images that you see here are from the digital artist Sirio Berati, which show that Sirio certainly pushes the envelope when it comes to photography and artistic manipulation.

 

Sirio Berati is a 19 years-old visual/digital artist, depicted for his ethereal-like philosophical photographic manipulations. Sirio’s artistic journey began five years ago when he got exposed to Photoshop. This is when he started to create his own worlds and experiment digitally to further develop his skills. Little did he know that this adventure would soon open the doors of a universe with endless opportunities.

Sirio's Instagram is filled with impressive creations and works of art. Sirio creates interesting surrealistic philosophical images in which it uses irrational and imaginative elements to express emotions. While completely self-taught, and only having worked with Photoshop for a few years, Sirio's work is indeed inspiring.

 

His work is figurative and abstract, however, the way he approaches digital art though referencing historical events, global issues and philosophical ideas, reinforces their impact and makes it different from the masses.

Sirio’s work can have different dimensions and vary in context and themes while his artworks mostly are associated with a spiritual narrative. Sirio begins to create his angelic worlds by layering many images on top of one another. He then merges them into one seamless and coherent imaginative creation, while adding and playing with highlights and shadows, correcting colours, and carefully retouching small details to make the image feel authentic. In this way, Sirio's manipulations make you dream with eyes wide opened.
