Aliffira – who also goes by the name of The Other User – has an impressive repertoire of work that consists of him using this unique style of pixel art. He first discovered the art form through his uni friend who was in Game Development and showed him project files of his assignments, which intrigued him. Ultimately, his first foray into pixel art was a final project for a Colour Study class—a painting made with a few blocks of colour. As there was a lack of formal education in that respect, he admits that his novice methods were initially impractical and tedious until he met likeminded artists online. Based from that sense of community, he founded the pixel art group P1X3L_NATION, which has held everything from exhibitions to workshops in an effort to foster the art form locally.
