Artist Yoni Alter uses identifiable landmarks from popular city skylines to create interesting silhouettes in his series 'Shapes of Cities.'

Taking the most basic outlines of each soaring skyscraper, bridge and monumental structures, the artist gives them bold colors that mix as they overlap, as though made out of colorful lights. The overlapping effect allows for each of the iconic structures to be shown in full view without being concealed by neighboring buildings, placing them on equal ground. People who live in these cities or have been to some of them may recognize the landmarks, adding nostalgia and sentimentality to the posters.

Iconic city skylines become a collection of brightly silhouetted works of art in Yoni Alter 'Shapes of Cities' series.
