In an alternate reality somewhere, some of the most famous pop culture figures are disguising themselves as other equally famous icons. At least, that’s what Alex Solis attempted to bring to life with his new art series Icons Unmasked.
The Chicago artist’s series sees well-known comic characters “unmask” to reveal famous, or infamous, real-life figures. Above, Mr. Burns from The Simpsons can be seen wearing a Donald Trump mask, which when you think about, isn’t that much of a stretch. The series also features Papa Smurf as Biggie Smalls, perhaps alluding to the Brooklyn rapper’s other moniker, Big Poppa.
In other art-related news, Banksy opens a hotel in Bethlehem and makes a return to Instagram after a long hiatus.
