Buttons as Pixels - Crafts idea

Buttons as Pixels - Crafts idea



Ian wright didn't know what to do. "Then I'll make a series of portraits of figures from the 60s made up of 2500 buttons each! Great idea, let's get cracking! The series 'Mass Production' as a great result.



Ian does make more works that are entirely made up of pixels, but in recent years he seems to have enjoyed using 25mm buttons to represent his pixels. The beautiful round and glossy buttons really add value to these works! 

Nice extra dimension: the buttons themselves can show an image or a recognisable texture.
'Trevor Jackson' is made up of buttons with nutrition, breasts and buttocks. Nice!

Anyone want to give it a try? We are happy to help!
