The Irrefutable Waves of Pixels | Wavechoppa Bath Mats
Pointillism was originally a painting technique that is compiled of small colored dots to “trick the eye” into seeing a blend of colors into an image- using little dots that your eye collate together. The screen can have hundreds of pixels for every inch, blending the colors smoothly. Could Van Gogh, Claude Monet, George Seurat, Paul Signac, and many other great painters of this movement have been some of the greatest pixel artists of all time?
George Seurat, On the Island of La Grande Jette
Water Lilies, Claude Monet, 1919
Starry Night Over the Rhone, Van Gogh, September 1888
Nowadays, pixel art takes a whole new meaning. Due to advancements of modern technology, the capabilities have gone far beyond our imagination. Video-games, animation, photography, typography, graphics, and so much more have progressed exponentially. Presently, it is hard to even distinguish that certain graphics are compiled from pixels anymore. But as the pendulum swings, humans are naturally drawn to nostalgia, this could be the contributing factor as to why pixel art is making such a large comeback. Although we think that it is far beyond that. For a generation attracted to minimalism, maximalism, avant-garde and many more; pixel art somehow seems to match the threshold of it all- the lightness, the color, the simplicity, it can be so alluring.. Or maybe it just reminds some of their childhoods. Many artists apply their pixel designs to pillows, bath mats, face-masks, just about anything now thanks to the advancements of technology. The last few years pixel art has made a huge comeback, creating and reinventing the origins of pixel art from the 90s with a modern twist.
