Photo manipulation, at its very core, is surrealist. The results are often unnerving and illogical, but with photographic precision. London-based creative production studio Happy Finish offers high-end retouching as one of its many capabilities to a vast array of notable clients including Nike, Google, Samsonite, Gillette and Smirnoff, to name a few. Here are a handful of samples of Happy Finish’s work that could honestly stand on their own, outside of any marketing context, as thought-provoking works of art. Hats off to the talented artists at Happy Finish for elevating CGI to a whole new level.

More surrealist work here and here and here.

For most artists, the palette knife is used for mixing paint, and in conjunction with brushes for applying paint. Tehran-based artist Salman Khoshroo eliminates brushes altogether. He applies thick layers of oil paint to his (massive) canvases with an arsenal of palette knives with such deliberate precision. Not only does Khoshroo have a deep visual understanding of the human form, but his sense of color is truly astounding. For an application process that seems so heavy-handed, Khoshroo remarkably uses color in clever and sometimes subtle ways as to establish cohesion in these borderline abstract works. We’d love to see a Bob Ross-style process video by Khoshroo… We find his method and resulting work equally intriguing.

There has been a sort of renaissance of great movie (and TV) posters lately, and we’ve featured some of them here and here and here. Brooklyn-based studio SpaceWolf Limited takes the art of said poster design to another place (space, perhaps?) with their limited edition laser engraved wood posters. Yes, you heard that right… wood! Sure, this is a very niche product that seems geared toward (fellow) design/pop culture/sci-fi geeks. But there is a level of artistry and precision to be appreciated by just about anyone. We love the intricate details and beautiful contrast they achieve. Because these are (very) limited editions — just 50 hand signed an numbered pieces per design — the rotation of posters is constant. We look forward to future editions… these make great gifts (hint hint). Other products, including jewelry, journals and iPhone skins, available here.

No Photoshop here, folks. Though these geometric arrangements of fruits and vegetables feel digitally manipulated, they are the result of crazy meticulous cutting and arranging by Turkish photographer Sakir Gökçebag. The series has a really unique quality… can’t stop looking at them. The unnatural precision is really striking.
