Designed by Berlin-based visual artist Rainer Kohlberger, ‘pxl’ is a new iOS app that instantly transforms photos into pixel art.

The app contains 9 unique filters that break down images into interpretive shapes and colors.

Users can control the intensity of the effect by pinching or zooming and adjust the brightness and contrast levels by sliding their fingers across the screen.

“Some of the modes you can find in pxl also were already present in galleries and artworks by other artists,” says Kohlberger. “But my intention was to make it possible for anyone to stick her/his nose into abstract concepts.”

The cool app retails at $0.99 on the App Store.
