French artist Benoit ATL takes iconic pop culture images and reinvents them, whether it’s turning Che Guevara into a gay icon (complete with eye shadow and lipstick) or placing world leaders heads with those of recognizable sci fi and cartoon characters.

Benoit ATL is definitely conversation-starting art. He is heavily influenced by other artists and the pop art movement to create pieces that are part social commentary, part playful eye candy.

Implications - This is the kind of artwork that pokes, prods, and entices those previously uninterested in art to get involved and figure out what's going on. Do not be surprised to see or hear the name Benoit ATL a lot more in the next few years, he has a bright future in front of him.
