PIXU - The Pixel Art Project

PIXU is an 8-bit pixel art project, and it will make our portraits into a tangibel and eternal piece of art.

We use super-fast wireless networks while we get caught in traffic jams. Subway lines are getting tangled more and more, and our smartphone cameras are getting better resolution lenses every year. All of these have brought a total convenience to our lives including mine, but my life is now too complicated because of them. All of us sometimes want to look at our lives in a simple way so that PIXU starts to interpret this world with 8-bit nano bricks.

PIXU's first move is to let people with the same desire as ours have their own 8-bit pixel brick portraits. The next is to take masterpiece paintings into 8-bit pixel brick arts.

 

A pixel artist Jaebum Joo has been creating 8-bit pixel portrait art since 2010. For more information about him, please visit joojaebum.com,  instagram.com/joojaebum

Risks and challenges

It is important for PIXU to deliver products to every orderer on time, and PIXU will do its best to do so.

To PIXU Portrait orderers,
8-bit pixel brick portrait is limited for only 550 people since all the works will be done by the pixel artist Jaebum Joo's handwork so that the best quality is ensured.

There might be some unexpected incidents and obstacles we just cannot foresee such as flu, overwork, some sort of accidents and so on. These might cause the delay in the delivery of your PIXU Box, and our pixel artist Jaebum might writhe in agony.

In that case, please cheer him up by sending messages to mavcdesign@gmail.com or by visiting the pages listed below:
