New York-based artist Adam Lister breathes retro life into these age-old paintings by depicting them in 8-bit style reminiscent of our favorite video games!
With the use of only watercolors and cold press paper, Lister recreates some of the art world’s most recognizable paintings, usually by commission. Aside from the classics, Lister also creates 8-bit impressions of some of the most well-known pop culture icons like characters from “The Simpsons,” “The Jetsons,” “The Brady Bunch,” “Star Wars,” and “Star Trek”! Apart from aforementioned tools, Lister also paints using acrylic on panel.
Here are some of our favorite 8-bit works by Lister, put side by side with the originals! All the recreations were taken from Lister’s Instagram page.
