Barcelona, Spain-based artist Octavi Navarro has created a beautiful collection of pixel art illustrations of detailed scenes that each tell a personal story about the artist. The series of illustrations allows viewers’ eyes and mind to wander while looking at the pixel art people and objects. Navarro’s work is available to purchase online on smartphone cases, art prints, pillow cases, and more from his Redbubble store . Time-lapse videos of Navarro designing each scene are available to view on YouTube.
The idea comes from my love for classic video games that I played so much since my 9th birthday, when my parents bought me a second hand Commodore 64 with a box full of cassette games. In this project, I’m mixing my own painting techniques with some of the restrictions of classic pixel art, resulting in very personal scenes that tell unique stories.
