Cube Works Studio art
Cube Works Studio art is a collaboration of graphic artists whose goal is to re-contextualize common objects to create complex, high-quality pieces of functional art. Cube Works Studio has become world renowned for their work twisting Rubik’s cubes and Rubik’s-style cubes into stunning, cutting-edge works of art. As a small collaborative of specialized talents, the studio is focused on pushing the boundaries of modern art using the brightly-colored cubes as a distinct and universally identifiable medium. Cube Studio works include original creations, Pop-Art references, as well as a focus on some of the more identifiable cultural icons of our generation. While Cube Works is known for their work with Cubes, the studio also features art created with Spools of Sewing Thread, LEGO bricks, Crayons, Dice and even mixed media on brushed aluminum panels.
“Our works are meant to inspire, unite and invoke a sense of nostalgia by using common, tangible objects and methods to create impressive and entertaining works of art that can be appreciated and enjoyed by all”. Josh Chalom, Creative Director.
The art created is visually stunning with replicas of photos and original images jumping from the medium complete with subtleties in shading and depth – the possibilities for art are infinite.
Michelangelo’s masterpiece from the Sistine Chapel has been recreated using a world-record breaking 12,090 Rubik’s Cubes.
Cube Works Studio is the result of a collaboration of Graphic Architects and ‘Cubers’ creating a form of art that is retro, yet avant-garde, by re-contextualizing the aesthetic possibilities of the 1980’s toy craze, the Rubik’s Cube.
In the same way that pixels on a computer screen are colored and organized to form images, Cube Works uses the Cube as a unique, technically complex medium for creating art. The finished result is a spectacular conversation piece with replicas of photos jumping from the cube-formed ‘canvas’, complete with subtleties in shading and depth.
