In Excalibers work, the (often 8bit) pixel serves as a door between real and virtual.
EXCALIBUR is an artist collective from Tokyo, Japan, founded in 2007 by Yoshinori Tanaka. Their pixel art is strongly influenced by the graphic appearance of Nintendo in the 1980s and by the golden age of video games. As a base, they use the same 8bit pixel as the video games of that time giving its work a strong sense of nostalgia. Simultaneously EXCALIBUR emphasizes the advanced technology of our modern times.
