8bit.jpg The folks over at annual art show and collective I Am 8-Bit have revamped their official website, adding the news that there will be a brand new I Am 8-Bit exhibition at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight in Los Angeles from April 18 through May 19 2006. For those in town for E3 2006, from May 10-12, this should provide an opportunity to check out the awesome art - there's a big gallery of pictures from last year's exhibition over at Fort90.com.

In addition, the site also mentions Chronicle Books' 'I Am 8-bit' artbook, out this March, and described thusly: "Pac-Man. Frogger. Super Mario Bros. These classic videogames are burned into the collective consciousness of an entire generation, thanks to countless hours spent at pizza parlors and bowling alleys across the country. Now artists such as Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, and Ashley Wood put their memories to paper, canvas, and wood to create original works of art inspired by the art of the videogame." Sounds like fun on a bun!
