Art made from the toy invented by Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik in 1974 is now widespread enough that it has its own name – Rubikcubism. In a sign of its growing popularity, Cube Works Studio, founded in 2008, is set to move to a much larger gallery space this spring, leaving the 30-square-metre space it has occupied in Toronto’s Distillery District.

The mosaic of the Macau skyline he and his team of 20 artists created from 85,794 Rubik’s cubes, which is four metres high and 60 metres wide, earned the record for the "Largest Rubik’s Cube Mosaic Ever Created."
