Pixel art


I recently discovered the genre of pixel art. There is an obvious nostalgic appeal to retro video games, but artists are also using pixelation as it’s own aesthetic style, creating still images or minimalistic animations. This style of art requires working creatively within a constraint (number of pixels and colors used). The pieces can also be displayed in high or low resolution, or translated into patterns for tiles, cross stitching, etc.
