PIROSMANI’S UNIVERSE. (work in progress)                                                                         

                                                                                         
“Pirosmani’s universe” (In Georgian: ფიროსმანის სამყარო [Pirosmanis samqaro]) — a narrative pixel adventure game, based on the biography of Niko Pirosmani (1862–1918). 

The plot: characters of Pirosmani’s  paintings learn about the fate of their creator through interacting with each other inside an ethnically specific pixel environment.
Niko Pirosmani was a Georgian naïve painter. His life was uneasy and his death was tragic. I wanted to tell his story through his own artworks, and since all of his paintings belong to the genre of naïve art, the most suitable medium to translate them into is pixel. Pixel art is based on a strict limitation, and therefore is often about simplification. This strong parallel between pixel and naïve art has become a core of this project.
