San Francisco Pixel Poster by eBoy
eBoy is an art group founded in 1997 and is currently based in Vancouver (Canada) and Berlin. Members are Kai Vermehr, Steffen Sauerteig and Svend Smital.
It’s been more than 10 years since eBoy has started working on pixelized cities (Pixoramas). They created Berlin, London, Tokyo, Rio and other cities. They’ve become a sort of landmarks of pixel art.
The next city on their list is San Francisco, a historic city and as the most influential hub of technology in the world.
They plan on including The Golden Gate Bridge, Portero Hill, Mission District, Embarcadero, Sutro Tower, Coit Tower, the 49ers, the Transamerica Pyramid, the homeless, a Mercedes, fog, the gay community, the tech industry, business people, sailors, taxis, the pine trees, dogs, birds, boats and fish.
But aliens, monsters or robots might appear completely out of place.
Your support will enable them to fully focus on the project, with 4 months to do extensive research and build the massive amount of parts necessary to create the city. Every single object has to be built pixel by pixel, click by click, a very slow process. The poster will be produced at 1189 × 841 mm or 46.8 × 33.1 inches with a Weight of 115 g/m².
