I can’t even solve one, and these guys make amazing art! (30 Photos)
Some guys are just too talented and can do wondrous things with the most basic of objects, or do things with toys that you never thought possible. Ever think you could see a DaVinci masterpiece or a Warhol painting made out of Rubik’s cubes? Me neither.
There’s a studio in Toronto called Cube Works and they play on nostalgia by making art out of things we loved in our childhood. On top of their work in cubes, they also make art out of Crayola Crayons and Vinyl, but it the magic the they make with a square with only six colours to work with that we’re fascinated with, and their
Facebook is full of some pretty amazing work.
You can also check out their website
Cubeworks for some more art, behind the scenes and other fun stuff.
All the cubes within the art are legit Ribik’s cubes, that are hand twisted and secured together. You’d think that perhaps the artists are just moving the stickers around, but in actuality the studio orders moulded plastic versions of the cubes (no stickers) from the manufacturer, as they last longer and are more durable.
They’ve even set some Guinness records for their work. This one took 4,000 cubes to make,
This one took 12,000 cubes to put together.
Most recently, they completed a wall in Macau that took 2 weeks and 85,000 cubes to create.
Pretty impressive, eh?
Even better; they take commissions, so if you want to surprise your dad with a portrait of himself made out of Rubik’s cubes for Father’s Day, they’ll make it happen.
Now that’s awesome, cubed!
