You might think silhouette portraits are thing of the past, but artist Olly Moss would certainly disagree. His upcoming book, "Silhouettes from Popular Culture," takes the 18th century artform for a quirky ride through contemporary film, recreating the most iconic characters of the silver screen using the vintage monochromatic technique.
Many of the famed heroes and villains represented in Moss' book are easily recognizable by their unforgettable side profiles. Despite their iconic appearances, however, the artist never reveals the subjects of the portraits. In this way, the nameless figures remain ever-so-familiar, prompting the readers to wrack their brains as they delve deeper into the cult paradise that is "Silhouettes."
Inspired by the mystery of Moss' book, and following in the footsteps of our friends at The Guardian, we decided to put together a stateside version of the quiz to test your knowledge of pop culture's most famous faces.
