Defaced Illustrations

The Ali Jabbar 'Simple Public Figure' Project Omits Facial Features 

The Ali Jabbar ‘Simple Public Figures’ art installation shows just how familiar we are with some of the world’s most powerful and infamous personalities.

This faceless artwork features the likes of Barack Obama, Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Marilyn Monroe, Larry King, and Mahatma Gandhi drawn without their eyes, noses or mouths. Still, without these distinguishing features, I’m sure you can identify every single subject from the Ali Jabbar ‘Simple Public Figures’ project.
