A year ago, I came up with my Mag+Art project – a collection of magazine cover and classical painting mash-ups. My Tumblog became a bit popular and gained some followers. One of my followers requested me to try combining album cover art (instead of magazines) and classical paintings. It’s more difficult but I gave it a try.
I took the chance to make a series of digital collages featuring the studio album covers of some popular singers today. I used these album covers because they are simpler and straightforward. I think (the principles of) photography is the same as classical painting. Portraiture using cameras adopted the same set of rules and techniques in painting.
