Minuco are very proud to have presented the first solo UK exhibition of leading 'pixel-art' and 'vector-art' exponents, eBoy. The show was very well received and we had fans from as far a field as Cardiff and Cumbria make the trip down to London, and had press attention which spanned as far as Brazil.
Famous for their wild pixelated cityscapes featuring giant gorillas and sumo wrestler balloons, rampaging robots, girls, guns and rooftop tennis, eBoy unveiled their latest cityscape piece, "SuperBroncoBattle", as well as some of the best works from their considerable collection.
Hailing from East and West Germany, Steffen Sauerteig, Svend Smital, Peter Stemmler and Kai Vermehr, glory in the limitations of pixel and vector graphics, expanding the humble desktop icon and the simplicity of line-art into a new art form. They take as their inspiration, trashy sci-fi movies, supermarkets, video games, toys, porn and of course, Google.
eBoy have been commissioned, by the likes of MTV, VH-1, Adidas, Nike, Honda, DaimlerChrysler, Paul Smith, Levis, Coca Cola, Kellogg’s, and many publications including Wired, The New York Times and The Face.
Despite all their commercial success, eBoy’s work has been seminal in influencing a generation of designers and artists by always remaining on the cutting edge. They manipulate, stretch and twist the limited possibilities of the most basic computer tools to produce works of enormous detail, thought, originality and humor.
