Robert Silvers Photomosaic

     Years ago, when common Disney Stores carried framed art, we obtained this extravagant piece of art created by Robert Silvers. It is called a photomosaic, which is a computer generated print consisting of thousands of tiny images put together to illuminate one large image from a further perspective. Robert Silvers is an artist who created the term 'photomosaic' and patented the creation.

     This specific photomosaic is of Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas. Looking closely, you can see the different stills from the movie and how they blend together to create a larger image. It is matted and framed, with " Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas Photomosaics by Robert Silvers " at the bottom. It was made for the production of the film, in 1993, and when it was purchased we were told that it is limited edition. The dimensions are 30" L x 20" W and it hangs on the wall with a wire backing. I am positive that it could only be found on the secondary market, although we have not seen another one to date. This piece is very rare and interesting! If you have any further information about Robert Silvers Disney Photomosaics please share, we'd love to hear.

  1. Hi!!! My best friend actually has one of these - they are really hard to find and I've been looking for one forever. She's had it since she was in high school in the early 2000's. I came across your page looking for one that was for sale! It's a beautiful piece!

  3. The only information I have on this is that when I got mine from the Disney store they only had a few to start with and I bought the last one they had.

    Lorraine - If you come back to this site I'd be willing to sell you mine. I'll check back from time to time, it needs a good home. You can click my name to get to my Facebook link and contact me.

  6. I have a 2000 Walt Disney World Epcot Canada Pavillion, Walt Disneys Sleeping Beauty Photomosaic, by Robert Silvers. It says Pin Set III of XV, December 1999, Limited Editions of 2000. It is framed, although it has some wear to the frame edges, and has the metal inset medallion. If anyone is interested let me know.
