If you are not an art fan you may have never heard of René Magritte’s Son of Man painting, but you have probably seen it. That is the painting with the man in the bowler hat whose face is covered by an apple. The Pierce Brosnan version of The Thomas Crown Affair used it as a disguise.

There have been many different riffs on the image and now artist ben6835 has made the following paintings in the same style. They include an Alien, Hellboy, Indiana Jones, The Joker, Superman, Mars Attacks.
