This is a portrait of Bill Murray as a Russian general. You’re welcome.

But really you should be thanking ReplaceFace, which is taking orders for these prints right now.


The ingeniously comical mashup of a rogue artist, ReplaceFace transforms today’s most dignified A-listers — yes, we include monsieurs Van Damme and Norris in that group — into stately officers of the Russian imperial army.


The original portraits are the work of English portraitist George Dawe, who painted hundreds of Russian military bigwigs who withstood Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812.

Using copies of those paintings, ReplaceFace incorporates the celeb faces onto natural archival canvas with specially pigmented inks.

You can order glossy prints on high-quality, 100% rag cotton archival paper, or claim an ornately framed 27” x 23” canvas version. You can also commission work of yourself or your family.

Says the artist: “Perfect above the fireplace. I recommend gold frames.”
