Artist Highlight: Adam Lister

Adam Lister is a New-York based artist who recreates famous artwork as 8-bit watercolor paintings. In an interview with Huffington Post, Lister states: 


“I start with a pencil drawing, blocking in a few of the bigger components of my composition. Then I look to build the initial sketch into a strictly angular and geometric description of the subject, using only vertical and horizontal lines. A circle becomes a square, a diagonal becomes a staircase, and the translation of the original idea is rearranged through an 8-Bit inspired visual language. I find that the transparent and subtle qualities of watercolor paint on heavyweight cold press paper present a nice contrast to the rigid structure of the each picture.”

We love the modern, but minimal approach Adam takes on his pieces. It breathes a vibrant and futuristic new life into the artwork and it's like we're seeing things for the first time. Adam's work was recently featured in a solo exhibition at White Walls in San Fransisco. To follow along with his work, make sure to follow his links below.
