In his incredibly creative portrait mashup series Mag + Art, Philippine visual artist Eisen Bernard Bernardo has incorporated the cover photos of such magazines as Esquire, Vanity Fair and Vogue into classic works of art, using each image from the magazine to seamlessly complete each painting.
My Mag + Art series is a collection of magazine cover and classical painting mashups. Famous paintings of artists like Boticelli, Ingres, Klimt and Picasso were overlain with iconic covers of popular magazines like Life, Time, Harper’s Bazaar and Rolling Stone to produce funny and interesting visual combos. This ongoing project on Tumblr is my way of giving homage to the magazines – as venue of human artistic expression and vehicle of popular culture.
