The Starry Night at the Arcade: Pac Man Meets van Gogh

OK, I’ll admit it. I’m sort of obsessed with Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night. I just can’t get enough of the sweeping wind patterns that are prevalent in this piece of incredible art. This is one of the reasons why I’m always happy to find recreations, tributes, and reinterpretations of one of Van Gogh’s most beautiful pieces. Noah Gibbs, also known as ~SirNosh, is behind this amazing homage to The Starry Night.

Scientists Discover A Real-Life Pac-Man: It Died From A Power Pellet Overdose

Nope, that’s definitely not true. This sculpture comes via DeviantART user Kalapusa. His Pac-Man isn’t really adorable or cute. It’s kind of freaky-looking to be honest, kind of like a floating rat of some sort with an insatiable hunger. Hm, sounds like a potential nightmare or horror flick.

At first glance, this seating arrangement seems kind of odd until you realize what you are looking at. Pouf-Man is QAYOT‘s homage to one of the stars of arcade videogames, back when people actually went to arcades to play them.
