Adam Lister, an artist in Beacon, New York, creates pixelated images of famous paintings, such as the Mona Lisa, and pop culture icons, such as Breaking Bad. He uses watercolors to render the style that originated with digital displays. He also uses 3D printers to create textured sandstone sculptures of these images.
The pixelated style is one that was deeply influential in his upbringing. In an email to the Washington Post, Lister explained:
Having grown up playing Atari and Nintendo video games, this broken-down, angular method of processing and displaying information became an interesting guideline for me to translate and selectively restructure some of the most famous paintings in the world.
