Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to the opening of this year’s I Am 8-Bit art show in good ol’ Hollywood, California. For anyone not familiar with the show, I Am 8-Bit is a compilation of videogame themed art by a variety of artists. What’s most impressive about the show is that a lot of the artists aren’t even gamers. Once you see how detailed and meaningful some of the pieces are, it is hard to believe they were created by people that have never touched a videogame before.

But don’t take my word for it, check out the below gallery to check everything out. But be prepared: I took a lot of pictures. In fact, I think I got a picture of nearly every single piece on display. This may be the biggest gallery Destructoid has ever seen!

In all honesty, though, I couldn’t help myself. The art is absolutely incredible. As I walked around the large gallery, I was endlessly impressed by how creative and varied everything was. From a modern, nude Princess Peach with a P-wing tattoo to an Elevator Action movie poster, all the artwork was just as beautiful as it was wonderfully random.

Luckily I didn’t spend any money, but I was this close to buying a $900 Chrono Trigger painting. I’m not kidding. Hit the jump to see which painting I am talking about and also for a list of my top 5 favorite pieces.

If you live in the L.A. area you have to check out this free (!) show. It runs until September 7. Click here to find out more about it. And if you happen to purchase something really cool, hey, my birthday is coincidentally next month!

As promised, here is a list of my five favorites:

5. Dr. Mario

4. Link and Ganon

3. Princess Peach

2. Chrono Trigger

1. Elevator Action

Which one is your favorite?
