Gustavo Viselner is a Tel Aviv-based artist known for turning memorable movie scenes into pixelated 8-bit posters. We can pretty much just leave it with that right? We mean, what else do you need to know, it’s awesome! Gustavo Viselner was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and raised in Israel.
His educational background includes 4 years of animation studies at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and in the School of Visual Arts in New York city. He is now working as a freelance illustrator and art director in a social games company.
His passion for Pixel Art is visible. Each of his images contain a famous movie scene and recognizable line written at the bottom of the graphic. Star Wars characters or Lord of the Rings and the memorable Back to the Future characters are all animated through a retro video game technique. All these pixelated images tell of a movie that’s been dear to you when you were younger or, even of some more recent films, like “Superbad” or “Alien”.
It is funny because they look like in a old-fashioned Mario-kind of video game and it makes you think what if…The Lord of the Rings was a Nintendo NES video game? It doesn’t seem impossible, does it? How cool would that have been.
Now, let’s see! How memorable these pixelated movies scenes seem to you? Did you recognize them?
