Mr. Bean Painted Into Art History’s Greatest Portraits

People call him a caricature artist, but Rodney Pike calls himself a ‘Humorous Illustrator’ because that’s what he does and loves best — putting humor into his illustrations.

“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!”

In this photo manipulation series, Pike added a fun twist to some of history’s most famous paintings by replacing the portraits’ faces with the ever expressive face of Mr. Bean.

“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 said. “He’s lots of fun!”
