Remember Nerd Art Paintings? Well, now we have Geek Graffiti, proving that vintage Nintendo games never lose their cool. Even in the graffiti counter-culture there's always room for retro pixels.

Implications - This particular example features the legendary character of Link from the Zelda franchise. Link was lovingly drawn up on a brick wall in Melbourne by artists known as ghostpatrol and miso. For anyone who is a fan of retro Nintendo games, this kind of graffiti would certainly brighten up even the cloudiest of days. Let's hope that this is one street art trend that also gains traction in cities outside of Australia as well. Stats for Geek Graffiti Trending: Older & Buzzing
