We feature a lot of art on Web Design Mash but this is the first time we have featured the style of Vexel Art. Basically Vexel is a buzzword for an entirely pixel-based method of raster art that replicates the visual appearance of vector graphics style such as smooth gradients, sharp-edged lines and areas of flat colour. The actual word ‘Vexel’ derived from the combination of “vector” and “pixel.”

Below is 22 gorgeous examples of Vexel art with some familiar faces you may recognise.
