Jesse Tannous posted a topic in Game ArtThis year from late March to early May, artist Dan Hernandez had his art displayed in the Kim Foster Gallery in New York which features some pretty creative mash-ups of biblical paintings fused with video game themes. Check out some of the work he submitted here and tell me what you think. The show titled, "Genesis 2014," explained, "The title not only references the biblical Book of Genesis, but also the video game console Sega Genesis that was a defining moment in pop culture, especially for those in the artist’s generation. The Book of Genesis houses the creation stories: Noah’s Ark, Adam & Eve, etc. Similarly, the Sega Genesis was a vehicle for narrative video games like Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Altered Beast and others. Both have narratives that utilize the supernatural and mythical as a central and reoccurring theme. By embracing such eccentric comparisons, the artist explores the unique and interesting artistic possibilities that exist." What do you think of this artists depiction of historical biblical art with modern pop culture themes? For a full tour of the show visit the galleries website here.
