8bitbaba is an accomplished South Asian graphic designer with a side line in
minimalist pixel art, which he paints on canvases as well as screens.
8bitpoet comes by his small-scale pixelart virtuosity by genuinely oldschool
means, in a former life the late 90s designing Macintosh program icons as
Doc Halpern of Mad Science Laboratories. He is a co-founder of the Dead Pixel
Society. /
Axl is a Parisian artist who works in many styles but who has recently
stumbled upon the Commodore 64s PETSCII aesthetic and is currently feverishly
working every angle of it, machine-generated and bespoke.
Mike Blippypixel Rose is a digital artist whose tastes veer toward the
vintage in electronic music and visuals, dabbling in low-poly 3D modeling,
LED pixelart, and teletext as well as work in the distinctive palette of the
BBC Micro.
A more focused student of the Commodore 64 aesthetic you will not find. Cal
Skuthorpe made a splash invading Twitter with @PETSCIIbots, but that is only
the first stage of his nefarious scheme for world domination. /
Periodically we encounter someone who is not only a specialist in a given
medium, but who also focuses on a specific theme to the exclusion of all
others. Chuppixel is the worlds preeminent Tiny Towers-style pixelart movie
cast group shot specialist. /
Dos Grog continues in the expansion of our Italian contingent, demonstrating a
playful devotion to the pixelart medium.
A genuine professional teletext illustrator two decades hence, Steve
Horsenburger Horsley has recently returned to the game for love of the art:
Its kind of frustrating to discover you are good at something only to
realise its pointless in todays world, but I just really like doing it so I
am going to carry on. We feel your pain, Steve! At his website you can
commission original teletext creations from him, so dont delay to get your
own piece of textmode art history!
Illarterate is a multimedia artist from Wigan, UK. Despite attempts to
modernise, he will forever be known as That Guy That Does Teletext Art. But
whoever said thats a bad thing? / /
Wolf spirit Involtino draws pixelart on a 100x100 scale when not studying
architecture in Genoa.
LegoColin uses a plethora of programs to prepare images for physical
incarnation in the ultimate pixelart composition: assembled using Lego bricks.
You wont see any of Mavriks creative work in this archive, but theres a very
good chance that the collection will have passed through his graciously-offered
web hosting at en route to you, picking up from his historical
facilitator role greasing the gears of Mists KiTSCHNet echomail network from
its home at Daemons Gate BBS.
Mentalpop is a Toronto-basic pixelartist who works in collaboration with indie
game development teams and streams their creation sessions for Patreon
A veritable patron of the arts, Morgan Lee, longtime Mistigris textile
consultant, has continued apace in her mission of needlepoint pixelart. While t
mylifecomputerized explores the imposition of the aesthetics of vintage
computing specifically, the IBM PC CGA palette to help make sense of our
postmodern era.
Italian net.artist Nbreakfast thinks nothing of hacking a game ROM or patching
in an obscenity to a breadboard to get his idea across.
Nikki and Bunty are, in their words, two queer women who love retro games,
technological tat ... and arty crafty stuff! Given their peerless pedigree,
its more or less inevitable they would find their way into the teletext
revival... at least one of them has taken up their arcane art, which we are
authorized to share with you.
It is not understatement to describe Ozero, the artist formerly known as Onyx,
as a machine. Indeed, his total conversion is well underway! Compelled to
focus on a single discipline rather than being hugely prolific in three, these
days he fills Amazon with his ebooks. /
Ozunaga is just getting warmed up, but this may be the only portion of his
pixelart practice that can be observed at this distance without welders
goggles. Stand back!
Youll find the visual art stylings of OrdinaryPixel at the unlikely
intersection of pixel art, pop culture, and fine art, laying down colours from
a simplified palette in a conspicuously painterly fashion.
Pinguino grew up on the internet, doing telco for CiA, and VGA for GAS and
Rival. Lately, she runs the design studio Pinguhaus, goes raving on every
continent, and experiments with obscure foods -- her latest accomplishment is
making ramen noodles out of crickets. /
Graphic designer pz does an excellent job at emulating having been there,
then, with his very convincing oldschool ASCII art logo styles, but he has
many delicious flavours.
Artscene OG Smooth has long been on the Mistigris periphery, his telnet BBS
iNK on our distro site list almost since our revival, but this month this
elder statesman, founder of TeklordZ with which Mist Classic spent almost its
entire lifespan attempting unsuccessfully to merge with, descends from the
heavens by which I mean his regular ANSI and ASCII art gigs at Fuel and
Impure to save us -- yet again -- from yet another dopey Cthulu FILEID.DIZ.
Hats off, sir!
Every time I include her in an artpack, I find myself completely rewriting
Theresa Oborns bio, as though I might somehow hew closer to the truth, like a
darts player hoping to hit a bullseye. She draws and sculpts, and perhaps the
work speaks for itself.
First exposed to Teletex back in the late 80s spending 2 years making teletex
style pages with ViewData as part of school IT reading the adventures of
Turner the Worm and Baboozle on Channel 4 teletex, currently TitaniumDave
works in the games industry -- though his interest in Teletex was re-ignited
by the sadly-missed Feb 2017 Block Party in Cambridge.
Uglifruit is the alter-ego of Andy Jenkinson. Andy is quite tall does things
with music. Andy on occasion feels the need to express himself elsewhere. /
Webersso.n made hyperstylized perler bead portraits of women with fauvist pop
art colour schemes.
Communities of text art practice emerge through certain social contexts but
the basic premise is such an appealing idea that it keeps getting invented and
reinvented. XTComics draws comic strips using a combination of low ASCII
characters and emoji.
Yet another tireless participant of the UKs teletext renaissance, it seems
almost inevitable that we would provide a home for Alistair ZXGuesser Crees
playful screens beneath our umbrella.
