Pixelist Turns Your Favorite Instagrams into Hand-Made Oil Paintings

There a good few Instagram-related services out there that offer you different ways to print, send and/or use your favorite Instagram shots. From Postagram, which lets you send your Instagrams as (sometimes free) postcards to friends, to the Nike web app that allowed you to decorate your sneakers based on an Instagram photo, we’ve seen quite a few applications.

The most recent idea to catch our eye is Pixelist, and it’s gotten our attention because, unlike any of the rest, it turns your Instagrams into a hand-crafted product.

Currently looking for funding on Indiegogo, Pixelist is a service that pairs Instagram photographers with artists that will turn your favorite snaps into hand-made oil paintings. Here’s a quick intro to the service:

Creators Will Freeman and Conor Colwell have spent months finding the best artists and negotiating prices that won’t be out of reach for the typical Instagram user. And as part of the Indiegogo campaign, a limited number of paintings will be available at extremely low prices.

The final products are put together by Chinese art-school grads living in Xiamen, and the quality of the paintings is very impressive:

You can check out a full photo gallery of comparisons between original Instagram shot and Pixelist oil painting by clicking here. And if you’re already sold on the idea and have a picture in mind, head over to the campaign page sometime over the next 19 days and select any of the $ 90-$ 1,000 perk packages depending on the size and type of picture you’d like painted for you.
