Alternative video game art

VADER_DAVID_PROWSE_CTC5869.jpg

Whenever you hear an artist speak about his or her inspiration, if you're actually bothering to listen, then you've probably never heard the words Pac-Man or Double Dragon being used.

Which is a shame and a lie and a travesty and something that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. In comes those forward-thinking folk at Gallery 1988 who've assembled a new show that highlights the very best video game-inspired art out there.

It's called Multiplayer x2 and it's currently showing in Melrose, Los Angeles. If you happen to be over there then a) why didn't you invite us and b) check out more information here.
