Pac-Man Gets the Mosaic Treatment

by Paul Strauss

Here’s a piece of art any retro game fanatic would be proud to hang on their wall. It’s a handmade Pac-Man mixed media piece, using teeny ceramic tiles in place of pixels.

Perhaps inspired by the oh-so-awesome Ms. Pac-Man bathroom, this piece entitled Perpetual Pac-Man would look great in any game room. Or if you’re a serious retro gaming geek – hanging in your bedroom. Of course, it might freak me out to see Blinky staring back at me with his googley eyes in the middle of the night; “Don’t eat me, man. Eat the cherries! Eat the cherries!”

Created by Donna over ArcadeArt, Perpetual Pac-Man measures in at 20″ (w) x 8″ (h) and is handcrafted from acrylics and urban ink on canvas, then hundreds of individual colorful tiles made by the artist herself.

It’s just one of many fun old school arcade-inspired pieces over in ArcadeArt’s Etsy shop. Be sure to swing by and check it out.

    Hilarious that I thought to myself “Hmm this looks like my friend Arcade Art’s stuff.” Bingo! Small world.

      yeh I was inspired by them I love the tiled look of the space invaders :) I hadn’t seen the ms pac man bathroom until after I made my mosaic (it’s so cool), I’m working on a huge 1.2 metre version of this mosaic for an outdoor piece for an exhibition at the moment :)
