article imageAiden Glynn creates street art inspired by video games

By Abigail Prendergast     Jan 21, 2013 in Odd News
Toronto-based street artist, character designer and animator, Aiden Glynn has literally taken to the streets and implemented elements of popular video games into everyday objects. These creations draw inspiration from games like Donkey Kong and Pokemon.
Video games have long served as an escape from the hum-drum status quo of the real world. Now, the glove is on the other hand as the realm of pixels and polygons have stepped out of their respective platforms and onto the streets.
As Laughing Squid reports, Aiden Glynn - a Toronto-based street artist, character designer and animator working for Pizza and Pixels - used his creativity to incorporate elements of interactive entertainment into everyday things, such as a Donkey Kong barrel-shaped waste receptacle and a Pikachu street light base, and many more.
"Since people seem to have been digging my Videogame inspired street art, here’s one of the original 150," Glynn typed under a photo of one of his initial creations, depicting a particular underground-dwelling Pokemon.
