It’s On Like Donkey Kong with This Awesome Arcade Game Shadowbox

A while back, I told you about the awesome video game inspired 3D shadowboxes that Glitch Artwork makes. Well, since then, they’ve continued to step up their game with new and even better pieces of wall art for fans of classic video games. Now I think I’ve spotted my favorite one yet, a sweet piece of art that looks just like the classic first level of Donkey Kong.

Everything is simply perfect with this meticulously crafted cutout pixel art creation, from the wonky steel girders and broken ladders, to the flaming barrel of oil and Jumpman as he races to the top to rescue his princess from that giant ape. I especially love how they created a border inspired by the one around the screen on classic arcade machine – that really brings it all together.

The only thing I would love is if this were bigger – this shadowbox measures just 5″ x 7″. That makes the craftsmanship even more impressive, but I’d love to hang one on my wall that’s closer to the size of the actual arcade screen. Though I suppose if you buy a bunch of their artwork, you can pack a ton of arcade goodness into a small space.

If you’re game for some sweet arcade artwork, be sure to stop by Glitch Artwork’s Etsy shop and check out their entire collection. It’s a paradise for game geeks.
