How about getting your 80’s groove on with a dash of innovation? Well, that is exactly what artist Guy Whitby aka WorkByKnight brings to the table with his range of retro keyboard art. All of the artworks are created from a myriad of buttons that are found in various input devices like typewriters, phones, PC keyboards and even calculators. And, the end results are immaculate arrangements that morph into canvases depicting the ‘coolness’ from 80’s, including – stereo players, cassettes, boom boxes and those antediluvian cordless phones.
According to the grapevine, the artist does use his personal technique of photo manipulation for the groovy assemblies. However, he also uses different buttons to fill up the individual pixel spaces – which we can only imagine to be painstakingly difficult. In any case, the final effects are impressive to say the least, with the hues of the buttons deftly utilized to endow color and shadow to the collective compositions. But do take care to view them from a certain distance to comprehend the incredible attention to details.
