A lot of the computer manipulated photos out there are just a set of predefined Photoshop filters used to give an image a misplaced personal artistic touch. I had to get it out of my system before we get to Daniel’s work. I think I will stand on some toes now, it’s just my opinion for what it’s worth
That the digital toolset in capable hands can make masterpieces is displayed in the works of Daniel Skramesto. He starts with porn images collected from free websites. And starts shaping them, transforming them until it becomes a surreal erotic world. The original pictures are not recognizable anymore, besides some parts of the main models.
To me it appears as an streaming world, were all the warmth of the flesh flows. From one model to another, from the model to it’s surroundings. I think it’s a good choice to use the same texture and color in the background and the model. It really contributes to the endless flow.
Daniel Skramesto is portugeuse and born in 1973. He lives and works in Lisbon and is working as a web designer. He makes his art work in his spare time. He also writes, one novel is published.
A small quote:” Sex is a basic thing in human life, an activity as natural as eating and sleeping, and it is beautiful. I have felt so repressed for most of my life that maybe this artwork is a small “rebel yell”.
Please note: The work of daniel Skramesto is not suited for all audiences. It’s controversial art.
