Adele's face was plastered onto these iconic album covers by an East London artist

She had the best-selling album of 2015, shifting a whopping 17.4million copies and in 2011, she had an even better year, smashing the charts with her most-sold album 21, selling 30 million copies.

So it makes sense that Adele‘s face is plastered on all albums ever, which is what one East London artist set out to do.

Artist Pello, has taken the album covers from the singer’s record-breaking albums 21, and 25 and transposed them onto other iconic collections.

What resulted was an effortless fitting of Adele’s face on the likes of famous albums by Daft Punk, David Bowie, Queen, Kiss, and more.

Electronic duo Daft Punk’s album Random Access Memories looked like it could’ve featured the Hello singer as her eye was perfectly placed in the signature helmet won by the French ban as seen on their album cover.

The artist has also gone to the trouble of editing black paint on her face in the style of rock band Kiss.

You could even be forgiven for accepting that the Someone Like You hit-maker was also a member of Queen, as illustrated by Pello’s own take of their cover for Queen II.

Matching the black and white chrome hues of 21 and 25, Adele’s perfectly sculpted face was fixed atop the artwork for The Arctic Monkeys’ album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.

In another hilarious edit, Adele’s fragmented face was used for Bob Dylan’s album The Times They Are A Changing.

‘I like to create art inspired by music, and in the way that DJs mix tracks, I was experimenting with what album covers could be merged visually,’ says Pello.

‘It became clear quite quickly that the Adele covers worked with everything, with some fun results. So I mocked some up and threw it open on social media for people to have a go themselves’.

Other albums include Michael Jackson’s Bad, Kiss’s Dynasty and Iggy Pop’s Lust For Life.

The illustrator also dabbles in other original artwork, some of which are illustrative puns.

One colourful cartoon shows The Beatles, literally as bees using tools, with a likeness to the band’s members:

Another one might take a second but illustrates a doner (kebab) which is mad, as an ode to Madonna:
