Viktor Hertz's 'Pictogram Pop Posters' series features pop music illustrations of some of the most iconic artists of all time. These clever depictions translate the songs of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Elvis Presley, Iggy Pop, Johnny Cash and the Rolling Stones into pictograms.

While Hertz produced other pictorial works previously, in this series he went to the extreme in the sheer numbers of puzzling pop music illustrations. The artist said, "I made as many as I possibly could come up with for each artist, and jammed them into one single poster." Hertz began with the Rolling Stones poster, which was a gift for a friend's father. From there he expanded into eight different pieces. You'll quickly find yourself immersed in figuring out the meaning behind each of the 234 pictograms. Stats for Pop Music Pictogram Posters Trending: Older & Average
