Pixel 8 Collectables - Collection 1
16 May 2017 - 30 Jun 2017
We're very proud to have opened our new store with an exhibition from Pixel 8 Collectables - not only has one of the members been a good friend of Kapow since before it existed (he sketched the first incarnation of the coffee shop) - but they seriously match our vibe!
The first collection they've chosen to share with you is a series of 3 dimensional re-interpretions of classic computer games.
Here's what they say about themselves:
Ever since we can remember we have had a deep love for making things and generally being creative. Even as grown ups with all the distractions of adult life (work, bills, you get the idea) we always went back to crafting and designing things whenever we got the chance.
After working in retail and customer service jobs for many years we had finally reached creative critical mass and concluded that we could no longer keep our creative tendencies as just a hobby.
And so Pixel8 Collectables was born.
Inspired by an era of video games that used grids of individual pixels to create masterpieces that captivated millions of people all over the world, we felt Pixel8 Collectables was a rather fitting name.
The works they have on show include Donkey Kong Arcade, Street Fighter, Sonic (the Hedgehog), Mega Man X and Super Mario World.
