Tumblr of the Week: Mangun

It's interesting how we can immediately identify a person's face in drawings, even when, upon closer inspection, they barely contain any characteristics of real humans. Indonesian artist Popo Mangun's black and white drawings are an example of this mental habit. His tumblr is a gallery of strange portraits, whose geometric shapes are reminiscent of ancient tribal masks.
