Here is a short documentary with a look into the “pixel”. There is a movement in art to go back to the 8-bit Nintendo-like look that we all love to remember. That nostalgic feel of the Mario Bros. has a universal way of creating a simple look that allows you to draw back on those childhood memories of playing video games in front of the TV. As they point out in the video, if you think about it, the pixel can be connected back to older art forms such as mosaic and pointillism. The digital age is just using the pixel as a more modern depiction of these classic art forms. And no matter how far we move forward with digital graphics, the pixel will continue to be the starting point for everything that is created.
