Ecuadorian artist Beto Val splices vintage illustrations into surreal hybrid creatures through his stunning surrealist digital collages.
Beto Val’s collages immerse us in a surreal world plagued by absurd and eccentric beings, but who are somehow familiar to us and whose existence is not only possible but necessary. Wild Aristocracy, Amazing Machines, or animals from an Imaginary Animal Kingdom, everything is possible in the mind of this creator who skillfully combines his vintage collage technique with photo manipulation. Beto Val creates his universe that resists going through a single theme and a single style. His passion is exploration, play, and fun in all its expressions where each new collage suggests a world completely different from the previous one and yet all of them bear the perfectly recognizable stamp of the author.Beto Val
