The Evolution of Mosaic Art | Mozaico

Going back 4,000 years or more, mosaic art was a principle and a form of expression. It was the art that complemented architecture and was considered to be an impressive asset. Nowadays, you see mosaic murals and artworks everywhere, ornamenting streets or decorating homes and monuments. Check out this list of incredible mosaic art and how it developed time after time.

English Breakfast Mosaic Artwork

The Beatle's Food Mosaic

This mosaic artwork has the name “Let it bean” referring to the material used to make this mosaic BEANS such as chickpeas, green peas and kidney beans. It is a reproduction of the famous Beatles album cover with the band member crossing the Abbey Road. This mosaic piece was created using elements of proper English breakfast such as meat, fruit, breads and veggies. One of the Beatles, Paul McCartney was a vegetarian and is created with non-meat foodies. The mosaic artist Paul Baker shows incredible attention to detail and precision.

It’s now exposed in Brighton, Sussex at an old fashioned sweet shop. It was an impressive promoting idea for the Jelly Bean’s company. It was a dazzle for people passing next to the candy shop.

Mosaic art usually consists of putting together stone pieces or any sort of concrete material like a puzzle. However, digital photo mosaics are also gaining attention. Digital mosaic art consists of combining small pictures or pixels with each other to form a final outcome and an ultimate image such as the Steve Jobs portrait or the digital Eiffel Tower.

    I appreciate all the photos you share. I found this site due to seeing some of these photos pinned on Pinterest. Far too often pins have no credit or explanation whatsoever and I refuse to re-pin anything until I have searched and have found out as much as I can about the subject, then I pin from the original source when I can. I fail to see how anyone can accuse you of having “stolen” someone’s art. You have not taken credit for any of these lovely mosaics, nor for the photos of them. If there is no watermark, no signature, no info on the web as to who took the pictures, then, in my opinion, they are fair game. You, at least, were able to to impart some information about each photo and quite a bit about most of the mosaics. I thank you.

    If you don’t know the artists name, you should not be using the photo on your blog!!!!!!!!. It is as simple as that. It is theft. You should only be able to use photos whose origin you know.. You devalue artists work by doing this. All those people who have spent untold hours making that art that you are trying to take credit for by having it there as an advertisement for your business, The artists deserve the recognition. You are riding on the back of these artists for profit. Bad business in my humble opinion!!!!!

      Hello,

      We are well aware of the ethics of blog writing and we always write artists names. We are definitely not trying to profit of anyone’s back. Pictures that we post on our blog without artists’ names are pictures that have been shared all over social media and that we have found this way (without disclosure about the artists). If the artists contact us, it would be our pleasure to insert their names as it is their work. We are not trying to sell their work, on the contrary we are promoting their work and complimenting it. We are not implying ownership of any of the works. When the artworks are ours we state it, and when they are not we also do.

      Thank you for your feedback and do notify us if you know the name of the artists who created the pieces we shared.

    That correct form when you are displaying any artists work is too give them credit by saying the name of the artist and title of the work if you can get it. We all work very hard on our art, NEVER get paid enough for our work, and have difficulty selling anything or making a living. Just as you work hard on your blog and wouldn’t want anyone stealing any content without giving you credit artists deserve to be recognized. So from now on, please label every piece if art and who created it. Thank you.

      Hello April,

      We are in total agreement and we do give credit to the artists. When it is hard to find the name of the artist, we do our research. However, sometimes even after thorough research we still can’t find the artists’ names. If you know any artists that made any art piece we shared without us writing their names, please do share it with us in order to modify our posts. Also if you are an artist or have artist friends, you can notify us to feature you in our blog. It is always our pleasure to support talented artists. Thank you for your feedback.

      Best Regards,
      The Mozaico Team
