Brilliant 8-Bit Watercolours

Watercolours aren't cool. They're the medium of soft, dreamy landscape paintings, the artistic pastime of those whose idea of good time is literally watching paint dry. They aren't cool - unless they're being used by Adam Lister.

The New York-based artist has done wonders with this fluid palette and his 8-bit style. From reworkings of classic paintings, to stylised portraits of pop culture characters, Lister has done the seemingly impossible - we want to own a watercolour.

Head over to his website to see more of his work and pick up a print from his store.
