The best part about the Internet is finding stuff that’s both familiar and new. Artist Filip Hodas of Prague has become our latest obsession, combining pop culture icons with a sense of grandeur and decay.
The Game Boy always felt so monumental to me as a little kid, so it’s nice to see it represented as an actual monument. Though in need of some repair.
A not so happy meal.
This Pac Man will haunt my dreams.
There’s a lot of detail in these images that beg a lot of questions. Like, “Would you write mean things about Hello Kitty on HK herself?”
If those Tetris blocks really did just fall to Earth.
Decay is a common theme in Hodas’s work, as is the looming feeling of disaster. But is the disaster yet to come or did it already happen long ago?
Creepy or cool?
A little bit of both.
It’s haunting, beautiful work. Hop over and give Hodas a follow.
