Johan Karlgren is a Swedish urban artist better known as Pappas Pärlor, who has gained a name with his exhibitions in the public, from which he takes advantage of the scenarios to place his pixel art.
What he does is to place plastic figures on streets, parks, roads and other public spaces to recreate scenes of cartoons, video games and other 2D creatures and integrating them into urban environments.
His creations are fun to watch as each piece is created to interact with its surroundings making them stand out. Well, that part is clearly visible when you look at a few of his creations!
“A creation can take me 15 minutes or 2 weeks depending on the occasion. But I prefer stuff that’s quick. I’d rather use as few pixels as possible than go big.” – said the artist to Bored Panda.
His stunning pixel art can be usually found on everyday objects – pipes, sculptures, streets, traffic signs and many more, and always with a vintage aesthetic. From Super Mario to Ninja Turtles, The Simpsons or Rambo, the art of Pappas Pärlor will appeal to fans of street art and retro video games.
