Keyboard Key Portraits of Famous People

Keyboard Key Portraits by WBK

Australian artist WBK makes keyboard key mosaic portraits of famous people. The portraits may look like physical creations but they are in fact elaborate digital composites.

A large part of my work makes reference and is influenced by the transition from analogue to digital. Using old type sets, type writer keys, analogue numbers, analogue timepieces (clock faces) etc. to represent the analogue era. The digital era suggested with computer keys, calculator buttons phone buttons, etc.
