Watercolour paintings of cult films inspired by Atari and Nintendo 8-bit video games

In his ongoing body of work, New York City-based artist Adam Lister – featured previously – loves to create watercolour paintings of cult movies inspired by classic Atari and Nintendo 8-bit video games.

Breaking down each image into geometric abstractions, his pixelated artworks pay homage to some of the world's best loved films – everything from The Shining and Jaws to Alice in Wonderland and Edward Scissorhands. And if you grew up in the seventies or eighties, you'll feel a huge sense of comforting nostalgia, not just from enjoying his chosen reproductions, but from the 8-bit approach that will only remind you of happy days spent with your console.

His limited edition prints are available to purchase via his website. All prints are signed, numbered, and dated. Shipping normally takes between seven and 10 days.

Born in Fairfax, Adam currently resides in Beacon, NYC. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York, he has exhibited all across North America and Europe. Discover more at www.adamlistergallery.com.
