We are all familiar with Cubism, but Rubik Cubism? French artist simply known as Invader coined the term when he began creating mosaic art out of Rubik’s Cubes. Each small colored square on the face of a Rubik’s Cube represents one pixel. Invader’s early works were representations of early 8-bit arcade game characters such as the digitized alien enemies from Space Invaders, and Pac-Man characters. His work has since evolved into much more detailed works, like recreating the Mona Lisa and Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Can.

You’ve probably seen Dutch surrealist artist Leon Keer’s work online, or maybe you’ve even seen it in person (in which case we’d be jealous). His latest masterpiece, painted on a sidewalk in Venlo, The Netherlands pays homage to video game classic Pac-Man. Keer has been designing and painting large murals for the past 15 years, and took them directly to the street 5 years ago, giving birth to new avenue (literally and figuratively) to bring his work to the masses. Keer says of the medium, “Every street art piece is unique and belongs to the street and its residents.”
