An innovative artists uses pop icons biggest hits - including Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Marilyn Monroe - to create striking silhouettes. If a picture says a thousand words, then these daring designs depict a thousand smash hits.

Their popularity grew and in 2013, Sean, from Alberta, Canada, began making more and has even transferred them onto T-shirts.
