Today I’m inspired by the work of Eisen Bernardo, a Filipino graphic designer based in Hanoi, Vietnam. I came across an image from his series Mag + Art the other day, and am featuring my favorites from the series below.
The project in his own words:
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.
