The latest series from Brooklyn-based artist Anthony Michael Sneed is one of the most controversial works of art you may ever see. The young, talented artist has combined historic events, political topics and others with 8-bit Nintendo graphics.

The collection by Anthony Michael Sneed is called Hell For Hire and was exhibited this month in New York City. His pieces cover important events, although they may be very sensitive for many to view.

Implications - With nostalgia playing such an important role in modern art, 8-bit animation has become incredibly popular among younger artists who grew up playing pixelated games. Although graphic artists who work in retro, computerized graphics enjoy more and more success, adding the exponent of political commentary is certain to attract even more attention to the designer's work.
