Polish artist Michal Krasnopolski has taken the minimalist pop culture trend to its most, um, minimalist. Using only straight lines and a single circle, Michal summarizes dominant imagery of the film, or creates a reduced version on its (existing) iconic poster.
Each design is built on “a basic grid consisting of one circle and two diagonals inside of a square… The artist then used playful techniques to translate elements from each story into symbolic representations of certain characters and plot points. With one simple yellow circle, he conveys the essence of The Lord of the Rings while a single diagonal line captures the powerful flight of Superman. ‘There’s an enormous strength in simplicity; the fewer elements, the more we engage our imagination,’ says Krasnopolski.”
