Geek Eek!!!: Art Imitating Video Game Life

So I stumbled on Geekologie‘s article on Mario Power-Ups in the Style of a Classic Still Life. Toronto artist Elizabeth Sherry painted a classical still life with Mario Bros. items like mushrooms, turtle shells, or flowers. Quite clever! This and other pieces are available for print at her Etsy store here.


I must say. I love when art imitates video game life. It’s such a subtle and quiet tweak to a classic form of art. In addition to an homage to the classic Mario Bros. video games, Elizabeth also pays tribute to other classic video games such as Megaman and Zelda. So so clever!! If I had a game/entertainment room, I would totally put up these prints on my walls!


So classic. So ornate. So clever. I love it! =)
