The artwork of Gideon Rubin is truly unique. Painting portraits of typical family-style photographs, he leaves out one important element: their faces. Although facial expressions are missing from these paintings, their sentiment and mood still come across.

Viewers barely need to see the expressions that could be on the subject's faces, since Gideon Rubin has painted the body language so well and carefully chosen colors that reflect the emotions of his paintings. This type of simplistic portraiture is actually amazing in its minimalism. Stats for Minimalist Faceless Portraits Trending: Older & Chilly
