“For almost every day last month Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) created a fun illustration made with common (and occasionally not so common) food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs. The project, which still appears to be ongoing, has been documented heavily around the web.”
Souverein(tumblr / facebook) - “Free work done by the photographer Rene Mesman. They are a series of bird portraits done together with a hairstylist and an art-director. It was also shown in Volkskrant Magazine. Retouching and integration was done by Souverein.”
Artist Note: 8-bitscapes is a concept I have created along with a good friend of mine, photographer Kevin Rozario-Johnson. Kevin was responsible for shooting the base images, and I created the 8-bit characters and objects and worked them into the environments.
