Helmut Smits creates a makeshift sunset and photoshops reality

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, and nobody knows this better than Helmut Smits. The Dutch artist has a gift for recontextualising everyday quirks and turning them into highly engaging, sharply entertaining art images and films. Whether he’s photoshopping in the real world or creating a makeshift sunset with some cardboard and a car the results are always wonderfully executed. We’re pretty damn pleased that Helmut’s website is now loaded with long-overdue updates for us all to enjoy. Truly excellent stuff!
