Römer + Römer’s Impressionistic Pixel Art
Look closer. No, look really close. Pixel art might be trendy, but art duo Römer + Römer‘s vibrant pieces are not pixelated photographs–they’re oil paintings. Cleverly merging the modern aesthetic of pixel art with classic impressionism, Römer + Römer’s pieces of happy youth in Tokyo and Brighton perfectly captures that feeling of “old meets new.” In the gallery above we included a few close-up shots to show the detail of the paintings (and to prove that these are in fact paintings).
