Robert Jahns is an award-winning digital artist, photographer, and art director whose work has been on the spotlight for a while. He is best known for his surreal digital photo manipulations that gathered him over a million followers on Instagram.
Robert says he has been creating art since he was 6 years old and got into photography and photo editing 16 years ago. "Creating art always was and is my passion. With my art, I’m able to show the world the visuals I have in mind. I can inspire so many people worldwide in a positive way," he told Bored Panda.
When asked how he chooses the images to edit, Robert walked us through his whole creative process: "For every concept, I need several different images which I combine in post processing to create a new piece that looks as real as possible. I always try lots of images to see which works best and which images work best emotion-wise. I always know what images I need for my creations but I still try many different images to see what works best." The artist uses Photoshop, Lightroom and various smartphone apps to produce his beautifully surreal images. Robert says that when it comes to digital art, his biggest inspiration is his own creative mind.
In September, the artist will be releasing his first illustrated storybook called "Traumwelten" in Germany. He also has plans on releasing the book in English later this year.

What an engaging picture! My eyes keep getting drawn to explore the depth of the clouds and their reflection, then returning to the figure in the boat, and back again. But it's also such a peaceful, serene image...I would love to have this picture on any one of my walls - could spend hours in contemplation....

Imagine living in there. Bit scary walking across the bridge, but it's bound to be magical.

We can do anything better than them. Yes we can, and be beautiful proving it.

This is the first one I haven't loved. It looks really instagramy (in addition to the subpar photoshop).
