Surreal Digital Art Portrays a Future Filled with Robotic People


Apparently, in Italian artist Francesco Romoli’s mind, the future is filled with all kinds of strange creatures that are part human, part machine. Postcards from the Future is a playful series in which Romoli has transformed classic portraits from the early 19th century into unexpected figures and forms. The combination of old-fashioned garb and futuristic machines is surreal. A face replaced by a television set or a lightbulb looks almost normal in the skillfully manipulated compositions.

Romoli’s imagination often reaches out to the unknown and unpredictable to produce his offbeat digital collages. His work stretches the limitations of a comprehensible reality and explores the wild fantasies that he concocts in his own mind. The artist says, “What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we cant decipher. What we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables. There is only the inevitable.”
