Philippines based graphic designer and children’s book illustrator Eisen Bernardo superimposed a selection of modern magazine covers on classical paintings to create an art series called “Mag + Art”. Figures in paintings from the likes of 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.
