There’s really not a particular easy way to lead into this. Most people around the world are familiar with renowned artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, van Gogh, Grant Wood albeit perhaps to a lesser extent, and many more. Their incredible paintings are some of the most recognizable works of art in the world.

Today, these masterpieces have remained popular for their aesthetic value. But what happens when you superimpose the faces in famous portraits with the faces of celebrities? For one thing, you’ll have a good laugh at them.
