One artist is putting an interesting twist on the concept of cubism.

In this time-lapse video, a single pair of hands belonging to artist Kyudan arranges 240 Rubik’s Cubes into a stunning Poké-picture 15 cubes wide and 16 cubes tall. That’s a lot of cubes!

The subject of his masterpiece is Flareon, the reddish-orange fire type Pokémon that evolves from the creature known as Eevee. But Kyudan has posted even more videos of constructions of the Bitcoin logo, the Canadian flag, a Flappy Bird pop-art piece, and countless other Pokémon, just to name a few.

According to the artist, he specializes in CubeArt timelapses, “pixelated mosaics that use nothing but the stickers of cubes to make images." He says, too, that a project like this one takes around four hours of work and careful planning to complete.
