THEY ARE the bucket list destinations that every traveller must visit. The Pantheon, the Statue of Liberty, Big Ben and the Taj Mahal, to name but a few.

But what would these iconic landmarks look like if they had been recreated by famous artists?

The team at Bounce have used AI technology to reimagine what some of these landmarks would look like if they were based on the style of top artists.

The Statue of Liberty

Originally designed by the French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi but to add a true sense of freedom and life to the statue, Bounce have reimagined it in the style of pop art pioneer Andy Warhol.

The Pittsburgh-born artist was well known for his bright and colourful imagery, particularly of typical American objects and people, such as dollar bills, Campbell soup cans and the actress Marilyn Monroe.

The Taj Mahal

India’s famous mausoleum was created by approximately 20,000 artisans back in 1653. It is often regarded as the best example of Mughal architecture and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.

One of India’s most well-known artists was Raja Ravi Varma. He was trained in both watercolour and oil painting and mainly focused on Indian mythology and religious themes. His art involved lots of shadows and rich colours, which have been incorporated into this reimagined image.

Big Ben

Completed back in 1859, Big Ben is one of London’s most iconic landmarks. The tower that houses the Great Clock was originally designed by Augustus Pugin and follows a Gothic revival style.

But what would it look like if Damien Hirst was involved? The Bristol-born artist was well known for his bright and colourful work, particularly his spot paintings, which involved rows of randomly coloured circles.


Alhambra is a complex made up of multiple fortresses and a palace and can be found in Granada in Spain. The design features examples of both Islamic and Spanish Renaissance architecture.

Bounce used one of Pablo Picasso’s most famous periods of work, the Blue Period, as inspiration for their reimagined image. This work of Picasso’s featured a range of blue and green tones, which were then enriched with earthy tones, similar to those of Alhambra.

The Eiffel Tower

An artist who was particularly famous in Paris after becoming known as one of the Impressionists was Berthe Morisot. Her use of watercolours and a limited soft colour palette worked well to create a sense of romance and elegance, making her the perfect match for this reimagined image.

The Arc de Triomphe

Designed by French architect Jean Chalgrin, the monument was made using a Neoclassical version of ancient Roman architecture and features four main sculptural groups on each of the pillars.

Possibly the most famous French artist of all time is Claude Monet, who was well known for his impressionist paintings, particularly those of outdoor landscapes. His work featured blurred imagery and lots of short brush strokes, which are depicted in the reimagined image.

La Sagrada Familia

The largest unfinished Catholic church in the world is in Barcelona and was designed by the Spanish architects Antoni Gaudí and Francisco de Paula del Villar and features characteristics of Spanish Late Gothic, Catalan Modernism and Art Noveau styles.

Salvador Dali was well-known for his surrealist technique and bizarre images. His artwork often featured typical everyday objects and landscapes that have been deformed.

Buckingham Palace

Possibly the most famous artist to come from the UK is Banksy, a pseudonymous street artist known for his distinctive stencilling technique. His work focuses heavily on political and social themes, making him the perfect pairing for this reimagined image of a famous royal residence that has been on the London site in various forms since 1624.

The Pantheon

Rome’s famous Catholic church and former Roman temple features both Greek and Roman style influences, such as arches, columns and a large hemispherical dome.

Who better to reimagine this image than Leonardo da Vinci, whose work featured lots of detail when it came to anatomy, light, botany and geology, as well as a very clever, yet subtle gradation of tone. He was also known for being a prolific draughtsman and often drew very detailed sketches.


Located in Salisbury, Stonehenge is made up of an outer ring of vertical standing stones, reaching approximately four metres high.

Antony Gormley is a British sculptor, who is well-known for working on the Angel of the North sculpture which can be found in Gateshead. His work often uses the human body as a theme and attempts to treat the body as a place, rather than an object.
