Map art is the process of placing blocks of certain colors and shades in a large area (most commonly 128x128) and then using a map to render that area from above, creating artwork. Most map arts reference elements of pop culture (television, music, movies, etc.), politics, memes, or famous logos and symbols. There are also map arts of SimPvP-related content, and map arts containing original creations or designs.

Map art truly began to gain popularity in 2018 after clipchip created the piece "Asuka", the first widely-popular map art. However, map art had existed before then, although there were only two documented pieces: the original iteration of "MisterStrawman's Eye" by MisterStrawman and a Nazi Germany swastika created by Infam0us2. Unfortunately, very little is known about these map arts, and it is unknown what year they were created. Nevertheless, since 2018, map art has been a common fixture on SimPvP, with many players creating their own original work.

SimPvP player Azdin also created a specially-made tool specifically designed to assist players in the map art-making process. The program can be found here: [1]
