Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr. Bean) Hilariously Invades Famous Paintings

It would be just like Mr. Bean to accidentally get his portrait painted by a classic master… and that’s a bit what it looks like here. In his half hilarious/half disturbing series, caricaturist Rodney Pike has been inserting the face of Rowan Atkinson into the works of classic masters. The actor suddenly sports the wig of George Washington (and a knowing look) and then becomes Rembrandt looking rather nonplussed. It’s utterly bizarre and fantastic.

Atkinson (who you also know from The Black Adder) has managed to appear amongst the brush strokes of Gilbert Stuart, William Adolphe Bouguereau, Hans Holbein, and even that one painting by Leonardo da Vinci. And thanks to Pike’s exceptional skills with Photoshop, it looks like Atkinson was truly meant to be there.

See more of the series, along with Rodney Pike’s many celebrity caricatures, on DeviantArt or his personal website.
