Artist of the Week: Pete Fecteau

Pete Fecteau works in many media and his pixel art using Rubik’s Cubes just recently became widespread.  I definitely classify this as Pop Art because of the materials.  The pixel has been around for almost five decades but people have really gotten into using pixels and optical blending for art.  This makes sense because pixel art is an overlap of digital technology, traditional representational art and manufactured color.

See the video below; the time lapse of the installation being built is great.  Pete Fecteau is planning a new work as a portrait of Albert Einstein and has a link to a Kickstarter fundraising page on his webpage here.
