Jia Xing Yap is a young artist from Malaysia who specializes in funny Photoshop paintings. His work is reminiscent of the styles used by Tiago Hoisel, Sam Nielsen and Denis Zilber who all create humorous digital art works. Photoshop paintings like these fall roughly into the modern realm of pop surrealism, combining realistic textures and shading with caricatures of people and animals, warped perspectives and cartoonish proportions. These style elements add to the humorous nature of each scene and allow the artist to portray hilarious scenarios with ease.
Photoshop is a digital art program that allows artists to constantly edit the elements of their art work. With the click of a button, a mistake can be rectified or a color can be changed. The digital art creation process is faster and cleaner than traditional art forms, yet lacks the physical input that is required from traditional artists. However, funny digital paintings like these are popular for magazine illustrations, adverts and poster designs and their digital format works well in these industries.
