Press Release

There was a time when playing video games was all about spending all your change in those dark places known as Arcades or becoming someones best friend because he had that console that no one else had, waiting 15 minutes for the game to load, or blowing on the diskette when it didn’t load.

It wasn’t perfect, but it was our universe. And it’s from this universe that grows the desire to portrait the first heroes, the villains, the cheat codes, the basic colors on the 8-bit sounds, the power-ups and all this that changed the nowadays panorama of video games.

Add fuel to the fire, akaCorleone, Fidel, Jucapinga, Min, Phomer, Target & Tosco, start the first round of “Push-Click”. They are gamers, they are artists and the get together to present new original works, limited edition screen prints, games and old school gaming accessories… from back in the days when the definition was low and the pixels were less.

Tempos houve em que jogar videojogos passava por gastar chapas nas arcades em locais inóspitos ou fazermo-nos amigo de alguém com a consola que mais ninguém tinha, esperavam-se quartos de hora para carregar um jogo ao som de linguas mortas, ou sopravam-se disquetes quando elas não carregavam à primeira.
Não era perfeito, mas era o nosso universo. E é desse universo que nasce o desejo de retratar os primeiros heróis, os vilões, os cheats, as cores básicas sobre sons 8-bit, os power ups e tudo o mais que veio moldar o panorama actual dos video-jogos.
Add fuel to the fire, akaCorleone, Fidel, Jucapinga, Min, Phomer, Target e Tosco, começam assim a primeira ronda de “Push-Click”. São gamers, são artistas e juntam-se para apresentar trabalhos originais, edições limitadas em serigrafia, jogos e acessórios… do tempo em que tudo tinha menos definição e menos pixeis.
