Canadian studio CubeWorksStudio creates artwork — murals and designs — out of Rubik’s cubes. It took CubeWorksStudio three years to “assemble” an impressive body of work — painstaking recreation of numerous portraits of cultural icons and masterpieces of famous artists.
Our studio is focused on pushing the boundaries of modern art using the brightly-coloured cubes as a distinct and universally identifiable medium. (CubeWorks)
CubeWorksStudio presented their work on exhibition venues of North America. Now, they brought their works to Moscow, Russia.
Next to each exhibit hangs a plaque with information about the original work and a number of cubes it took to re-create it with Rubiks.
Each “tableau” must be dismantled before moving, packed into wooden crates and transported in several pieces (cubes are glued with special adhesive). Usually, it takes a teamwork of six people and about four days to “put the cubes together” and assemble an exhibit such as the one in Moscow.
“Hand of God“, after Michelangelo’s painting’, was attracting huge crowds at the exhibition hall in Moscow. Made of 10,800 cubes, it takes up the entire room where it can be admired from a special balcony.
Nor every creation of CubeWorksStudio is pictured here, and not every item shown in this post is exhibited in Moscow. Certainly not the huge recreation of Macau’s skyline made out of 85,794 cubes. With this work, CubeWorksStudio broke every existing record for ‘Largest Rubik’s Cube Mosaic Ever Created’ .
