Adam Lister an 8-bit artist and enthusiast, has teamed up with 3-D print master Isaac Budmen to create a collection called 8 bits, 3 Dimensions. The work consists of re-imagined classic pop culture prints utilizing an 8-bit videogame style but in 3-D formation. The duo created an extremely unique catalogue of art that is recognizable yet… just a little bit foreign.
Lister and Budmen use a combination of 3-D printing technology with hand painted watercolor additions to mimic the 8-bit style. The process starts with Lister painting a watercolor image of the desired print, and then Budmen digitizes it. Finally, Budmen creates a 3-D model from the original and prints it in sandstone.
The project takes a more modern approach to classic pieces such as the Mona Lisa, all the way up to pieces that are relevant in today’s culture. From Superman to Breaking Bad, there are many different elements in this collection that are well worth seeing. Check out all the prints here.
