Famous Paintings Remixed With Popular Album Covers Are The Best

Visual artist Eisen Bernardo is responsible for these ingenious collages that remix classical paintings with popular album covers. Finding the right combination between the world of modern day music and classic art is by no means an easy task. Sometimes the colours don't match, other times the composition lacks a natural flow.

It's with an incredible amount of patience that Bernardo has been able to create such a seamless selection.

"I took the chance to make a series of digital collages featuring the studio album covers of some popular singers today. I used these album covers because they are simpler and straightforward."

"I think the principle of photography is the same as classical painting. Portraiture using cameras adopted the same set of rules and techniques in painting." he explains.

Mariah Carey looks regal as a Tudor whilst the 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson finds himself spliced into The Zouave by Vincent Van Gogh. Drake, Taylor Swift, Kylie Minogue, Avril Lavigne and Beyoncé also travel back in time. Each finding themselves merged into all manner of classical artworks.

You can see the ongoing series through Bernardo's official official Instagram profile. Whilst you're there, why not send him a suggestion or two for some more combinations?
