The Ali Jabbar 'Simple Public Figures' art installation shows just how familiar we are with some of the world's most powerful and infamous personalities.

This faceless artwork features the likes of Barack Obama, Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Marilyn Monroe, Larry King, and Mahatma Gandhi drawn without their eyes, noses or mouths. Still, without these distinguishing features, I'm sure you can identify every single subject from the Ali Jabbar 'Simple Public Figures' project.

Implications - These images are magnificently minimalist and are highly contemporary. They would look edgy and awesome on household walls or even in the lobbies of offices or hotels. Simplistic art is definitely becoming more popular than overwhelming extravagant pieces. Forget the frills and fanciness, hang one of these minimalist illustrations on your wall today.
