So what happens when you add the street sensibilities of a graffiti artist with video games? Well, you get Diego Bergias and the “Where Is Lepos?” project. It’s a computer-generated character that’s been wheat-pasted on the non-CG streets of places like Los Angeles, Vancouver, New York, Stockholm, and Prague. And aside from major cities, he’s made it into Tony Hawk Project 8 video game, Time magazine, and the Wooster Comix by Wooster Collective.
P.S. I’m fully aware that this exhibition is talking about 16-bit goodness, but it’s all love, right?…right?
