Top 10 Examples of Video Game Street Art

Over the months of doing these art themed posts, we have seen some amazing things. From things made with recycled CD’s to some incredible crop art. But as I look back on them all I start to see a pattern forming, almost all styles of art have at some point been inspired by Video games! So with that in mind I think we need to take a look at some amazing art that is directly inspired by Videogames and see if it is just as good…

This top 10 was always going to end with Mario because he as influenced so many people! And this amazing Mario wall mural in Russia does nothing less than making me smile and nostalgic from memories of playing the game, and that for me is the best kind of art form.

  1. Street art these days is more commercial and not as pure as some of the original street art. But that does mean to say it is not cool! So it is god to hear you enjoyed it.

  2. Hi Thank you for following my blog and also I like this type of street work. The type of stuff I had seen is gangs (in the past) and that’s not creative that’s plain rude .anyways thanks for these a lot of these I remember:)Nice job.

  5. Reblogged this on An Insomniac's Dreams and commented:

    I would much rather see these around than the usual graffiti letters that I can’t even read…these are very talented artist.

  6. I do love street art – I know most of it isn’t legal, but I really do love the heart and passion that the artists can put in, and the use of the surroundings! For example, the Pac-Man is brilliant, even if he doesn’t really eat solid lines.
