Unusual Pairings Beautifully Blend into Dreamlike Portraits

Spanish-based artist Antonio Mora, also known as mylovt, uses the web to craft his surreal works. He looks through online databases and finds images that he later combines into unconventional portraits. We see unusual pairings where the lower half of human faces are fused with waterfalls, cityscapes, desert rocks, and more. The results are beautifully dreamlike photographs that feel timeless.

Mora integrates the separate elements seamlessly, matching them so that they look like one cohesive image. Sometimes, we'll see that a plant is contained perfectly within the shape of the face, but the artist isn't afraid to make his images more playful. A chaotic set of brushstrokes have a mind of their own when attached to someone's head, and Mora even has them cleverly framing the model's chin. It's moments like this where his skilled handiwork makes us believe that we're looking at some strange, hybrid being.
