Modern technology has allowed for a lot of work done toward the manipulation of photographs. It could be making a photo look more professional, or perhaps as a way of tricking or fooling people into believing an image. In some cases, it can be used for great comedic value, with any number of mad combinations capable through the likes of Photoshop and other programs.
Artist Rodney Pike has shown this with his amazing mash-ups of the iconic Mr. Bean featuring in a number of the most famous portraits in art. The Mr. Bean character is made famous for his outrageous facial expression, which looks utterly ridiculous yet pretty life-like.
The way in which Pike seamlessly blends actor Rowan Atkinson’s face into a number of classic art pieces is very impressive. To the uneducated, they could be legitimate portraits. Not satisfied with superimposing Bean’s face onto class pieces of art, he has also added other items made famous by the comedy sketch show, showcasing his talents as well as his sense of humor.
