This history-inspired minimalist series by French artist Rene Mambembe falls under the category of time period art, as it focuses in on images that largely define different decades. These fantastic designs cover events like World War Two and the 1929 Wall Street crash that kicked off the great depression.

These minimalist pictures might be simple, but they're also extremely effective. One of the pictures Rene did for the 50s shows a bus stop bench painted half in black and half in white to represent segregation. This also makes viewers think of the story of Rosa Parks, which is quite clever.

These designs are uncomplicated and eye catching. From Roswell conspiracy theories to the reign of Hitler, these minimalist art designs cover history's most memorable moments.
