When I was in high school, I discovered the artwork of Chuck Close. He creates massive portraits which, upon close inspection, are made of grids of pixels – as seen here. I think we can thank (or blame) Chuck for this blog post. He was quite the inspiration to my adolescent self.
Here are five striking, clever and colourful pixelated images.
1. A needlecraft-inspired illustration by Holly Wales. I love it.
3. Handmade fabric jewellery by the Likkle Girl.
4. ‘La Encarni’, by Karramarro. Clever, eh?
5. Fluoro pixel textiles (I want to wear this, or upholster my whole house in it). Photo by PinkMoose
I also love this pixelated portrait of Marilyn Monroe.
