Famous Artworks Replaced With Popular Batman Characters

Like many artists and illustrators, Vartan Garnikyan is constantly inspired by works from some of the greatest masters in the world of art including the likes of Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo Da Vinci, Edvard Munch and Grant Wood.

For over 10 years he's been working with film studios helping them to create movie posters, DVD cover art and promotional materials. It's that combination of his love of classic art and his daily involvement in the world of film that has lead to the creation of his unique Batman series.

It seems him digitally recreating iconic artworks, replacing their key elements with various characters from the world of The Dark Knight.

This is my way of helping artists like Van Gogh and Da Vinci keep trending after all these centuries. I might be wrong, but I can’t help but notice how indifferent the general public is with classic art these days. I feel like every generation has a little less interest in the past.

Here's a selection of some of his experiments whereby the classics of old become hijacked by Batman and his villainous enemies.

The Starry Knight

Hello, Beautiful

American Gotham

Screaming Leto

The Creation Of Batman
