Iskra Print Collective Presents: Raised on Paper
“Printing pixels” had been a growing concept in my head for a while, and in general, the contrast between digital and analog. I tapped into my nostalgia for classic video games as a source of inspiration, and selected original 8bit characters to abstract into geometric compositions.
