Joo has been blending modern and contemporary style with western and eastern visual images and recreating his favorite Van Gogh and other paintings into pixel art. He brings a new life to these famous works of art and can do the same for his clients' most treasured portraits.

"We use super-fast wireless networks while we get caught in traffic jams. Subway lines are getting tangled more, and our phones are getting better resolution lenses every year," says Joo. "All of these have brought a total convenience to our lives, but my life is now too complicated because of them. Because we sometimes want to look at our lives in a simple way, I've created PIXU to allow my clients to start to interpret the world with 8-bit pixel art."

Through the campaign, PIXU is available in a Portrait Brick Set allowing users to create portraits into the pixel art. This package includes the 8-bit pixel bricks and 8-bit pixel bricks portrait, personalized building instructions, frame, special gift of personalized business cards, nano-tweezers to assessable the art, and PIXU stickers.

PIXU is also available to design recreations of favorite art. The Masterpiece Brick Package provides everything needed to recreate famous works of art including Van Gogh's The Starry Night, Picasso's The Dream, Munch's The Scream, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, and more. The set includes the bricks, special nano-sized tweezers, assembly manual, frame, and PIXU and character stickers.
