Somebody Set Us Up the Art

Pac-Man by Peter Gronquist

A show of original, non-digital art based on 8-bit video games has just opened at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight in Los Angeles. The main site requires Flash; the gallery, with 17 images of art from the show, doesn’t. (Via Dennis; The sculpture Pac-Man, pictured, is by Peter Gronquist.)

We must admit that Adam Cadre was there first, with a painting based on Joust. Although we must also admit (as Adam does) that he ripped the idea off from Matthew Bowman.
