Caricature Artist Inserts Mr. Bean’s Face Into Historic Portraits

Published 5 years ago

Do you remember Mr. Bean, the iconic TV comic persona? What about his famous recreation of the historic Whistler’s Mother painting? It was only a matter of time till someone decided to revive his hilarious secret project, but instead of adding a hideous cartoon face, caricature artist Rodney Pike decided to enhance historic paintings with Mr Bean’s, or Rowan Atkinson’s, own face. In Pike’s images, Mr Bean invades some of history’s most iconic portraits.

The artist used CS Photoshop to put Mr Bean’s face in the place of the original subjects’ faces. “I’ve created over 40 photo-manipulations using Rowan Atkinson for the main subject over the course of 3 or 4 years and he is by far my most popular subject,” Pike told Bored Panda. “I make no statements with my work. It’s simply for fun. It’s just a really cool bonus that I get paid for doing this stuff. Love my job!
