Salvador Dali is the king of dystopian landscapes, creating elaborate worlds with nothing but paint and a canvas. Well, thanks to photoshop new artists have a unique tool to experiment with surrealism. Polish-born artist Mirek is one such artist who is using his 10 years of experience with the editing software to create one-of-a-kind images.

His creations are manipulations of natural landscapes combined with other images containing mostly gothic style elements. He said in an interview his process begins with the location, "I am looking for the best example of a mountain landscape, then I define the atmosphere of work and I choose photos in a similar climate. I check various configurations and combinations of these photos and choose the best."

The self-taught artist said he finds seeks inspiration from other surrealist works but tries to focus on keeping his own style, "Just do not look at others, create what we have in our hearts, each heart beats with its rhythm and that makes us unique."

A flat world on the back of one of the 4 elephants (only one fits the picture), so far so good. But who is the brave guy who built his cabin on the Giant Star Turtle Great A'Tuin?

    I have actually been here. I am glad that I brought some watermelons.

    This one looks both beautiful and sad. The picture itself is awesome. But the bear looks kind of sad. Perhaps that man is going to visit him.

    What the hell?? Such an odd place for a fish. Is it helping hold the bridge up?? Or maybe it's a weird blimp??

    I wonder how it would feel like to climb up the fell. For the giant polar bear here the ice axe would be like acupuncture. And there is a penguin there so it seems that either the polar bear or the penguin traveled half the world.

    So sad. He looks so tired, and lonely, and sad. Makes me want to pet him and tell him everything will be okay. And then go find him some food. (Yes, I know he's gigantic, but I can do what I want in my imagination.) Poor thing looks like he needs some love. They all do.

    This doesn't make any sense. There's a skull in the sky, a cartoon black cat under the factory, a realistic cat stretched our, and then there are cartoon black mice.
