Looking to diversify your investment portfolio with some modern artwork are we?

Then you've come to the wrong place.

That's not a comment on the quality of the following works: the artists here assembled possess some truly brilliant, studied skills. It's just that posters, which play around with the themes and characters of popular video games, are about as likely to start accumulating value as that old laminated Pulp Fiction poster you picked up for £3.50 at university.

What we've got here is a collection of alternative artwork likely to set the pulses of hardcore gamers racing, and make little-to-no impression on all others.

Created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the superb shrine to video game culture that is iam8bit, the greats of Nintendo, PlayStation and Sega star in this superb series. Currently exhibiting at the iam8bit gallery in Los Angeles, you can glance through a selection of the works below. Be sure to head to the online store to pick up your favourite.
