This is a mashup of layered iconography if we’ve ever seen one. Multimedia producer and writer Eisen Bernard Bernardo has been superimposing modern magazine covers on classical paintings. Here the figures in paintings from the likes of Boticelli, Picasso and Waterhouse are mashed up with modern covers featuring current stars like Miranda Kerr, Penelope Cruz and Pharrell.

Unlike other superimposing projects featuring books, record sleeves, bank notes, or even classic paintings located in Google Street View, Bernardo didn’t have the luxury of adjusting one half of the scene so it matched. Instead, he had to search through endless collections of magazine covers and paintings to find the correct match, image to image, body to body.

Inspired by the success of a similar project he had featured in FHM, the Filipino designer has been sharing his large and growing collection on Behance and at Mag + Art.
