Known for his incredible pixel drawings, artist Aled Lewis has outdone himself with his 8-bit drawings that depict celebrity vs celebrity.
Drake vs Chris Brown, Kanye West vs Taylor Swift, Kobe vs Shaq -- these are some of the great celebrity feuds of our time and Lewis illustrates them all beautifully in a pixelated retro style reminiscent of the street fighter series. However, Lewis doesn’t just mine current pop-culture feuds, he also gives some of histories biggest feuds the same 8-bit treatment; Tesla vs Edison, Jobs vs Gates and George Washington vs King George III.
As a bystander to these celebrity feuds they can sometimes be obnoxious, however that’s not the case with these celebrity vs celebrity drawings. Aled Lewis’ work is part of a show at Gallery1988 entitled 'Such Pixels.'
