Paint Over Pixel: Brock Davis’ minimalist paintings of classic arcade games

Do you recognize these classic games? Even if you’re not familiar with the 1980’s arcade scene, chances are that some of these paintings by Brock Davis, which contain no more than a few carefully placed brush strokes, should be almost instantly identifiable. I’ve stated before how fascinating it is that the iconography of videogames is such an integral part of our visual language, and once again, an artist far more talented and clever than I has proven my point. Be sure to check out IAM8BIT for more artsy pop culture interpretations of the games we know and love. But before, take a look below to see all three paintings in all their non-pixelated glory.
