This is easily one of the most creative endeavours I have come across that blends fashion and art. Eisen Bernard Bernardo is an artist who has created the series “mag + art”. It is a collage series that superimposes magazine covers on classic works of art. I headed over to the artist’s official tumblr page and was so impressed by how well the pairings work. I will share a few of my favourites below but if you want to see the rest of the art for yourself, click here.
