Photomosaics

Robert Silvers' Photomosaic Jigsaw Puzzles

robertsilvers Photomosaics offer a challenging but very rewarding medium for jigsaw puzzles. At first sight it may put off some puzzlers but the medium is well worth pursuing. The challenge is to concentrate on the flow of colour and shade whilst at the same time enjoying the subtleties of each image as they join to form the whole picture. Doing these puzzles can be very therapeutic. We have customers who have bought Photomosaics jigsaws for Autistic children. They comment that these puzzles help greatly with their children's concentration and give a good sense of achievement to them.

Combining groundbreaking digital technology with photography, fine art and a keen imagination, Robert Silvers developed Photomosaics when he was still a student at MIT in Boston in 1995 when he was only 26yrs old.

His distinctive new medium immediately dazzled the art world as well as the commercial graphics industry, gathering world wide acclaim through large scale projects for Fortune, IBM, Lucasfilm Ltd., Mastercard International, Disney and Paramount Pictures and gracing the covers of LIFE, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek and Wired.

truman Notable achievements include:

  • The National Gallery in London selected Silvers' portrait of Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates for their 'Painting the Century' exhibit, highlighting influential art of the 21st century
  • Mastercard's Photomosaic was awarded First Prize for print advertising at the CIMA Awards.
  • LIFE Magazine's Photomosaic cover won a Merit Award from The Art Director's Club.
  • Premiere Magazine selected The Truman Show Photomosaic poster as one of the top 50 movie posters of all time.
  • Photomosaic Jigsaw Puzzles were awarded Puzzle of the Year honors by the Australian Games Association.
  • Nineteen countries have commissioned Robert Silvers to make collectible stamps.

Photomosaics are coloured mosaics of tiny digital photographs that blend together to form a larger image. The choice of photographic images used often has a theme relating to the final image e.g. Oprah Winfrey's photomosaic is made up of thousands of images of people from around the world whilst Princess Diana's photomosaic is made up of thousands of images of flowers.
