Artist Gil Bruvel doesn’t confine himself to one method of producing creative work. Whether painting, sculpting, or creating functional art, Bruvel’s creative energy flows through each of his pieces.

The pixelated sculptures appear like sophisticated pieces of three-dimensional pin art that reveal permanent images of faces, instead of temporary impressions of a nose or hand.
