Donkey Kong and other classic video games from the 1980s are the inspiration behind a new art show.

Pixel Culture opens Friday night at the Alternator Gallery in Kelowna.

It features the work of 27 local artists, "celebrating the love for classic video games. From Super Mario to Monkey Island, these games of the 80's helped shape a generation of youth and taught us just what a pixel could do" says the gallery's website.

Daybreak's Adrian Nieoczym went down to the gallery and met up with Jessica von Innerebner and Cale Atkinson -- two of the artists who contributed to the show.
