Artist reimagines heroes, villains in minimalist 'Masks' series

Experimenting with the iconic nature of their costumes, Ukrainian illustrator Yuri Krasnoshchok has distilled the masks and faces of numerous fictional heroes to sparse geometric shapes in a minimalist series called simply "Masks of Superheroes."

Spider-Man, represented only by those oversize white eyes, is probably the most successful of the bunch, but most of them are almost instantly recognizable, without the aid of the characters' names.

Daredevil works well, too, but I think my favorite may be the Incredible Hulk, the only character to be shown twice: once apparently when agitated, and again when in rampage mode.

See a selection of the illustrations below, and the rest at Behance.
