As the saying goes, less is more, and artist Shiraz Malik takes this to heart with his minimalist TV poster series. Using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Malik creates bare-bones posters of your favorite TV shows, giving fresh perspective to these beloved series. Malik, clearly a lover of good TV, incorporates series of all genres and styles, from fantasy epics to reality competitions. Minimal TV posters may not visually display very much, but they convey everything you love without utilizing very much. Hanging from binder clips with a slight crinkle, each poster feels much more classically quaint, bringing you back to the core of some of TV's greatest shows.

Featuring some of the best shows currently on air, Malik's minimalist TV posters capture the essence of each show while still managing to evoke a bit of mystery. Sometimes to do the most, you must work with just a little less. From Grey's Anatomy to Game of Thrones, Malik's included a little something for everyone. Make sure you check out his website and Instagram for more amazing art.
