This Artist Is Decorating The Streets With Our Favorite Pixelated Pop Culture Icons

shares

Despite the fact that our video games and television shows now come in crisp, high definition, we still have a huge sense of nostalgia for when it comes to pixelated imagery. Now Swedish artist Johan Karlgren has shared his series of pop culture icons, pixelated and hidden amongst our daily surroundings to give average architecture a bit of a facelift. 

From television classics like The Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to retro video games like Mario and Pokemon, some of the art would likely be overlooked by those not paying attention to their surroundings. Even the new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi gets a nod to the adorable Porgs we saw in the trailer

Below are just a few of our favorites, you can check out more of Johan's art on Instagram
