I think everyone likes badges (or buttons, whichever you call them), but Ian Wright likes them to the point of making fine art out of them. Ian makes a lot of pixel-based artwork, or art that resembles pixels but are actually made from all kinds of different materials.

The piece above, aptly title Mao, is made up of 1 inch badges covered in Chinese silk. Rad, huh?

    that IS rad. I love how the individual ‘pixels’ also reflect the subject matter, with its Chinese patterns and lush silk. Thanks for sharing!
