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)

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.3.530x350

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.

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’ .

we broke every existing record for ‘Largest Rubik’s Cube Mosaic Ever Created’ by using 85,794 Rubik’s Cubes to recreate the skyline of Macau, China. We have been working hard over the past few months with international teams to conceptualize, design and twist each of the 85,794 Rubik’s Cubes
