Street Fighter meets Predator in this piece by Aled Lewis. All Images: iam8bit
It’s a art print called, obviously, You Sonofabitch!, and it’s by artist Aled Lewis for a gallery show called iam8bit: A Love Story, which opened in Los Angeles this week, timed to E3. It’s one of several pieces Lewis did blending romantic movies (or, romantic moments) with video games. Here are a few others. Can you guess the mashups?
From top to bottom that’s The Legend of Zelda and Ghost, Prince of Persia and Dirty Dancing, Monkey Island and Titanic, then finally, Super Mario Bros. and Say Anything. So good.
And can’t you almost hear Ryu and Ken doing that classic Predator line?
The art can be previewed at this link, info about the event is here, and the show is online at iam8bit’s site.
