Ingenious pixel artwork created using Pantone modules

Pantone pixel work

Pantone modules make up this brilliant project of pixel artworks

Pixel art (opens in new tab) is a type of digital art where artists specify the location of individual pixels, which are built up to create intricate scenes, game backgrounds, characters, and 3D effects - all with a limited colour pallet. Here, Spanish designer Txaber (opens in new tab) has used Pantone modules to produce an array of pixel art images.

"This work consists of constructing images from Pantone modules - the colour and text reference - this unit is then treated as a pixel," he explains. The process is to convert the images into colour mosaics, then each color is replaced one by one by the corresponding pantone module. It is a laborious process, but I think the result is interesting."

The pixel artworks include imitations of Mario, Andy Warhol and iconic logos such as The Rolling Stones and Apple. The patience needed for a project such as this is unfathomable. We love it!
