GIF (Graphic Interchange Format) images have been viewed for decades, but never really considered a deliberate form of art. It was more a smaller file size that would load faster on computers or mobile devices, and offered some type of animation. But it’s crude and very basic limitations was not taken seriously as actual art.
Recently there has been a increased interest in creating animation GIFs because of their fast load times, compatibility across all platforms, and unique image perception. Below are just a few of my favorite examples of different expressions created by exceptional artists. Be sure to click on their links for more examples of their creations.
Uno Morales is also known as the “pixel painter.”
Carl Burton – One of my favorites. Be sure to view his other work – Great use of spaces and environment.
