Power Up Metal Print
Our metal prints are thin, lightweight and durable 1/16" aluminum sheet canvas. The high gloss finish enhances color and produces sharp image details. Each sheet has a 3/4" wooden frame attached to the back to offset from the wall. Prints have a wire or sawtooth hanger, depending on size selected.
Power Up is the tenth and final drawing of the series Game Theory. Highly influenced by the Ninendo video game Super Mario Brothers, it features two recurring characters of within the Game Theory series. The first is the dark haired lego mini figure, first seen holding a guitar and microphone in the drawing Tycoon Wars. Here he is oversized, as if he has taken something to make him grow, a Power Up, like that in the Mario game. He is seen in profile, reminiscent of another series within the larger series of Raddington Falls of a window installation called Exile, created in Williamsburg Brooklyn. The mini figure wears black and grey, in contrast to the candy-colored video game landscape. Above him is a pixelated empty thought bubble, his thoughts open for interpretation, as seen previously in the drawing Temple Breach. The other recurring character is the pink cloud, here shown larger with a bemused expression, perhaps surprised to see a Lego monkey holding onto blue floating bars. The monkey in the upper left portion of the drawing is a nod to the game Donkey Kong. The checker board background, slide and ladders are based on the board game Shoots and Ladders. In the center is a very large sunset behind a pink and blue castle. As always, parts of the drawing are left incomplete like the question mark box in the bottom center and the giant mushroom.
