He Turns Fine-Art Masterpieces Into Classic Arcade-Game Graphics. I Recognized Most Of Them…

How much visual information does your brain require to recognize a classic painting or an iconic pop-culture character?

That’s what painter Adam Lister set to figure out. He takes well-known works of art and faces and remasters them using eight-bit watercolors. The results are reminiscent of old school video game graphics.

However, outside of the creative genius that can reimagine the classics, it's also impressive to see how we can still recognize famous pieces with greatly reduced visual cues. See how many you can name.
