Modern art. We've all thought it, traipsing around a gallery filled with inconsequential piles of rubble with the occasional eruption of paint smeared over them: surely we could do that? Our dog could probably do that, if you locked it in a room with a squirrel and some open tins of emulsion.

The iam8bit Entertainment System exhibition is our kind of modern art. This retro video game-themed art show will exhibit the work of over 80 artists, each paying tribute to an unforgettable era of gaming in a variety of styles.

Held in the iam8bit Gallery in Los Angeles, the exhibition will be running from June 7 to June 30. We've booked our tickets, but if you don't fancy travelling all that way, check out the following gems.

“Arcade” by DKNG Studios

“Samus” by Ken Garduno

“Mega Man” by Dadu Shin

"Arthur" (Ghosts’n Goblins) by Steve Courtney

“Untitled” (Super Mario Bros.) by Nicole Gustafsson
