In this digital age we live in, we are bombarded by so many pixels that sometimes we hardly even notice their presence. With the influx of video games over the last few decades, pixels are no longer just the seemingly infinite number of dots on our monitors but are now considered an art form.
Wolverine, Stegasaurus, and Vader with Snowman by Alex Griendling.
Pixel art is a type digital art where artists meticulously choose the location of each and every pixel to create scenes and images. They're reminiscent of 8-bit, 16-bit, or old-school graphics that were popular in early computer and video games. However, with 3D and state of the art graphics, we've moved past the days when we could differentiate the individual pixels. Fueled in part by nostalgia, including childhood memories of maneuvering a mosaic-like Mario adeptly from castle to castle, pixel art of has been somewhat revitalized and is seeing a come back.
Amanda Glosson and Alex Griendling are two brilliant artists who share an affinity for this type of art and collaborated with Level Frames to bring you Collections of their amazing prints.

Planets by Amanda Glosson
For Alex, art is an homage to the video games of his youth. He enjoys making pixel art because it introduces "a deliberateness and a tedium that helps to slow [him] down and consider the placement of each element." Amanda calls herself a "Professional Pixel Pusher".
