Ever wondered what Mariah Carey would look like as a Tudor? Or Norah Jones as the subject of a Pre-Raphaelite-style painting? Well, ponder the thought no longer.
Artist Eisen Bernardo combines well-known classical paintings with album covers for his collection of ‘mashups’. After his project Mag+Art – combining magazine covers with paintings – gained traction online, Bernardo turned his attention to substituting magazine covers for album cover art instead.
Although more difficult, he decided to give it a try. “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.”
It’s surprising just how well the two mediums fit together seamlessly. Our personal favourite is Take Care by Drake + An Irritable Appeal by John Bagnold Burgess.
