Blip. Bleep. Bonk! Ahh, the soothing sounds of games long gone -- those pixilated treasures from the 80s that made our thumbs twitch, our mouths water. I AM 8-BIT is an annual group art show that aims to recapture that sense of wonder, enlisting the likes of 100+ world-renowned artists to paint, sculpt, and basically re-envision their favorite console/coin-op heroes or most intense old-school gaming memories, recalling those oh so fond moments from the era when pixels reigned king. Anything goes -- from the crazed image of a Burger Time sausage gone ballistic to Space Invaders doing disco -- hindered only by the artist?s imagination. Come check out the next show at Gallery 1988!
