Art based on video games is something that won’t get boring. No two art pieces are the same and with creativity you can go a long way. Artist Kalapusa created a real life looking Pac-Man sculpture representing his view on how Pac-Man would look like with his age taken in account.
I study a skin type that fits the subject, I figure out where the folds would be and how the wrinkles would form out with age
The art piece is made from clay, painted with acrylics and kept in a bottle filled with formaldehyde to make it look like a rare specimen.
It’s the first time that I come across an art piece that seriously tries to picture how a video game character would look like in reality. In an age where video games are completely integrated in our life I find such art pieces beautiful and valuable to our culture. Especially with a video game character like Pac-Man, the game celebrated its 30th anniversary this year which makes it a true classic. Thirty years in video games year is almost ancient.
The only thing missing is that artist would start selling their video games inspired art pieces. They have much more appeal than mass fabricated or even limited edition paraphernalia.
