  • Through The Years: Street Art That Got People Talking

    Kilroy3

    On toilet walls, on subway trains – both inside and out – on apartment doors, along alleyways and in children’s playgrounds – nowadays every major city in the world is plastered with hundreds of thousands of pieces of graffiti and street art. A piece may be good, excellent even, but if you don’t stand there and study it it won’t have any more effect on you than a single speck of paint on a Jackson Pollock canvas. As this list shows, for a piece of graffiti or street art to stand out it must be special audacious, and always in the public eye.

  • Girls, Birds, Butterflies: More Awesome Vexel Artworks

    Vexel art is very similar to vector art in terms of appearance. It typically features sharp-edged lines and areas of flat color, or smooth gradient fills. The word ‘vexel’ was coined from a combination of “vector” and “pixel”. The main difference between vexel art and vector art is that vexel artwork is rasterized. This means that it’s not scalable, so many vexel artists create their vexels at very high resolutions. Instead of using vector lines, shapes and polygons, vexels are created using a raster programs support for transparent layers. Each layer is given a solid shape, or shape with a gradient fill, and the layer order and structure creates the illusion of a single composition.
