The Russian project “Defected Pixel” is causing quite a stir online, in fact it’s gone viral. The creators combine real photos with pixelated objects, including a man smoking, a gramophone, food...even the sky has been given the eight-bit treatment.

Dmitry Shafrov, one of the artists behind the project, is an avid gamer with fond memories of the Sega and Dendy-era consoles. “As a kid I had often imagined how games’ characters would be seen in reality,” he says.

“Defected Pixel” is all about injecting colour into the “grey boring days,” according to the creators. All you need is an imagination and photoshop.
