KARMA by Martin Ariel De Pasquale

Karma is a personal project by our featured artist, Martin. In this set depicted, an Indian religious concept, called “KARMA”. It is believed that good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering. Read on and be amazed with his photo manipulation skills.

Karma is something I think that happens in everyday situations. It consists of 3 pieces, 2 photographs (retouching) and a painting of the same. The photographs took two days, and the painting it took me two months. Usually, Photoshop is the most used, Lightroom to catalog sessions, and some 3D software if necessary (3d max).

Everyday life, travelling and people around are my greatest sources of inspiration. I always carry my Notepad with me, to write down any idea that comes to mind. I just like graphing everyday aspects of life, its obsessions and its illusions but sometimes it’s just a humor.
