Filipino artist Eisen Bernardo managed to find a surprisingly correct combination, combining masterpieces of classical painting and album covers of contemporary music or magazines from around the world. However, according to the artist, it was far from an easy task when, for example, the shades of color did not match or the compositions did not look natural. To create such a collection surely requires a supply of boundless patience.

Bernardo said that he used images from album covers because they are simple and direct. The artist believes that the principle of photography is similar to the techniques of classical painting. Portrait photographers use the same techniques as portrait artists.

Let's take a look at the most unexpected combination of classical painting and modern photography, which Bernardo posts on Instagram.
