Art Of The Day – 06/03/2019

Pixel art is a form of digital art, created through the use of software, where images are edited on the pixel level. The aesthetic for this kind of graphics comes from 8-bit and 16-bit computers and video game consoles, in addition to other limited systems such as graphing calculators.

Glitch Art

Glitch art, such a young art style, celebrates the imperfect perfection within us, making us accept the fact that we are who we are also thanks to our mistakes.

Each one of these pieces were made using the technique of databending: the base image is either an original drawing or picture, then carefully manipulated with GIMP, Wordpad, and Audacity, an audio mixer.
