The old adage goes, “Simplicity is sophistication,” and these Jack Daly geometric portraits of celebrities is exemplary of that saying.

With only a handful of polygons, Daly is able to not only convey value and lighting conditions, but he also manages to capture the likeness of celebrities like musician John Lennon, director Alfred Hitchcock and retired MMA fighter Chuck Liddell. Whereas lesser artists would often stress and over-complicate their work trying to capture minute details, Daly recognizes the importance of conveying only crucial elements, saving himself both time and energy while delivering stunning results. It’s also incredible how expressive each piece is despite its minimalist approach.
