There are the good, there are the great, and then there are these guys.

Artist Kapil Bhagat has created this fantastic poster series which takes a minimalist approach to documenting some of the most famous and incredible humans that have ever lived. Simply using a face and an icon representing their most famous achievement, Bhagat captures the essence of a host of famous people including William Shakespeare, Neil Armstrong, Marie Curie and Nelson Mandela.

Take a look at our favourite 15 below, check out Bhagat's Tumblr for more and visit his shop to buy prints of some of his work.
