25 Stunning Examples of Shape-Shifting Smoke Art

Disclosure: This post is coming to you from MiO. Change your water. Change your day. What do you want to change?

After looking at some fantastic photo manipulations of water, we thought we'd turn our attention to the art of smoke. Today, we've rounded up a stunning collection of photos that show how digital artists can change its look and shape to take on different but all too familiar forms. In their own, unique and ingenious ways, they've given us a newfound appreciation for smoke's wispy, cloud-like appearance, showing us that it's possible to take something quite ordinary and make it appear magical, surreal, and even extraordinary.

  • Fascinating use of smoke......hard to imagine how they do this.

  • Two favorites! "Veil" and "Liquid Smoke" - simply amazing.

  • Fantastic!

  • Each one of these is pretty incredible. Love the colors.

  • Smoke drawings on the inside of a bottle I posted earlier this week were amazing, but these are sublime.
