Remarkable Pixelated Portraits Made of Computer Keys


Australian artist Guy Whitby, aka WorkByKnight (WBK), draws inspiration from the global transition into the digital era for his unconventionally pixelated portraits. The artist recreates the image of influential celebrities, musicians, and political figures by atypically assembling varied buttons found on your common keyboard, calculators, type writers, and phones.

Using his skilled hand in photo manipulation, WBK produces every piece with close attention to each neatly aligned key that serves as a single pixel. Instead of getting lazy and using the same shape in each square slot, simply assigning the space a different color, the artist utilizes the assortment of buttons found in a diverse mix of devices and designs. The result is a really impressive, time-consuming body of work. WBK’s deviantART gallery has nearly 1,000 images made of computer keys and a mix of analog and digital buttons, in addition to portraits made of actual buttons.

In case you have trouble making out the faces in the portraits, take a step back and take another gander.
