Art history buffs and music lovers, pay attention: this is one mashup you won’t want to miss.
Eisen Bernard Bernardo, a graphic artist and development communicator based in Los Baños, The Philippines, stared his Mag+Art Tumblog a year ago. He first started out combining art pieces with magazine covers and company logos, and has since gained followers and attention.
One of his followers soon suggested: why not try combining album cover art and classical paintings? Challenging as the idea was, Bernardo was certainly up for it.
The results? Nothing short of amazing.
“I took the chance to make a series of digital collages featuring the studio album covers of some popular singers today,” Bernardo shares with BoredPanda. “I used these album covers because they are simpler and straightforward. I think (the principles of) photography is the same as classical painting. Portraiture using cameras adopted the same set of rules and techniques in painting.”
