We often get so caught up in our routine that we hardly find time to dream or unleash our creativity. Photoshop is a mighty tool that brings imagination to life by creating otherworldly images that challenge our logic and invigorate creativity. In the digital age, it's easy to travel into the imaginative worlds of talented artists who keep blurring the line between reality and fiction, and at the same time, encourage us to think outside the box.

Malaysian digital artist Zulkarnain Ismail is one of those artists whose artwork captivates. He draws inspiration from photography and nature is one of the main subjects of his art. Thanks to his amazing skill set, he manages to seamlessly combine different images into surreal compositions.

Explore the world through the eyes of Zulkarnain Ismail by scrolling through his incredible photo manipulations.
