Pixelated Portraits by WBK

WBK

Australian artist Guy Whitby, aka WorkByKnight, is inspired by the digitalization of pretty much everything including artwork. He drew on this inspiration for his pixelated portrait series. Using buttons he found on keyboards, calculators, type writers and phones he recreates well-known images of pretty much anyone from celebrities to musicians to politicians. Look up close to see the intricate details of each button but take a step back from your monitor so you can really appreciate the light, shadows and nuance of each piece. They're pretty remarkable.
