I guess even artists can get inspired to put on a costume and pretend to be a superhero … in this case, we’ve got Andres Serrano (below left) and Salvador Dali (below right) with their Batman masks on. The Serrano image is an archival inkjet print titled “The Hierophant,” from 2010, but I can’t find any info on the Salvador Dali image … if you know the history behind this image, please share with us in the comments section below. ** (scroll down below the picture for an update)

Andres Serrano and Salvador Dali dressed up as Batman

** Editorial update, March 20, 2017: I was contacted by the artist who created the Salvador Dali/Batman image … the funny thing is, I somewhat assumed the image was a straight photo of Dali playing around with Adam West’s Batman mask, since Dali was alive when the tv series was in production. But in fact the image is a “mashup” digital collage by self-taught artist Emmanuel Laflamme. Check out his website here and see more of his mashups here.
