From back to black to a true bohemian: Can you put a name to these faceless celebrities?

Many celebrities claim they miss being anonymous, but an artist has shown that even when literally faceless, they are still recognisable.

Coco Davez, pictured below with her portrait of Princess Diana, first had the idea when she was so unhappy with the face on a painting of singer Patti Smith, she blanked it out completely. But the figure still looked like her and Davez was inspired to create a range of celebrity portraits.

The Spanish artist, who began her career by exhibiting on Instagram, now has her work on display at the Maddox Gallery in London until the end of May.

So can you work out who the famous faces are? Answers below.
