The 8-Bit Watercolor Masterpieces of Adam Lister

The 8-Bit Watercolor Masterpieces of Adam Lister
Artist Adam Lister puts an 8-bit spin on classic masterpieces and pop culture icons in his series of geometric watercolor paintings. In a style reminiscent of the earliest video game consoles of the 1980s, Lister demonstrates an uncanny ability to distill the essence of a piece down to its pixelated essence. Even the celebrities and sports stars which he renders in the same style, are instantly recognisable. Whether it's Klimt, Picasso, van Gogh, or Michael Jordan shooting hoops, there's a continuity of style here worth exploring, and that's exactly what Lister has done over the past few years, racking up extensive collection of paintings which is constantly growing. In other words, this probably won't be the last time he makes an appearance on the blog. In the meantime you can follow him at Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. He also does commissions and offers some Limited Edition Prints on his website.
