The 8-bit pop culture paintings by Adam Lister can be appreciated by many modern souls. Specifically titled '8-Bit Watercolors,' it is a series of work that converts famous paintings and iconic characters into the distinct style of retro video game graphics. The twist? They are rendered in stunning watercolor techniques.
Giving the 8-bit pop culture paintings an even more abstract feel, they can easily be likened to cubism works or even the masterpiece portraits of Picasso. Yet the artist's concentration on comic books, movies and other contemporary moments gives them a unique perspective. Earlier this year, his 8-bit pop culture paintings were shown in a group exhibit at Catalyst Gallery. They were also available as limited edition prints.
