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.
