The American Icons art exhibition will feature the photo-realistic paintings of Jason Brockert. His art covers pop culture icons like Star Wars action figures, Pac-Man, Optimus Prime, Atari 2600 and more. The show opens Friday, November 18, 2011 and runs through December 17 at the Iam8bit gallery in Los Angeles. The opening reception is November 18 from 7 to 10 pm.
As an artist, Brockert’s work stands unique in his ability to capture the still-life essence of these amazing creations, rendering images so realistic it’s hard to believe they’re NOT ACTUALLY PHOTOGRAPHS. But upon closer inspection, it’s easy to admire the awesome beauty of his textures and brushwork that prove that these are the creations of very able craftsman… and frankly, a mad genius concerned with incredibly meticulous detail.
30 full-color paintings and 10 drawings will debut at the show, as well as “limited edition” prints.
