Playfully Surreal Photo-Manipulations are Self Portraits with a Twist

It's safe to say that Martn De Pasquale is really good with Photoshop. The Buenos Aires-based digital artist creates surreal scenes that are both witty and fun, with a little mischievousness to them, too. De Pasquale is a master at photo-manipulation and makes these fantastical images look totally believable, so it's no surprise that we've been impressed by his work before.

The artist is the star of these portraits, and it's clear that he isn't afraid to poke fun at himself. This includes him getting strangled by his own clothes, unscrewing his head like a light bulb, and even getting his beard “mowed” by a miniaturized twin. These imaginative works give a whole new (albeit a little twisted) meaning to the self portrait.
