Custom NBA JAM Suns vs. Lakers Arcade Cabinet by artist Sakoia

Back on Feb. 1st, 2013 I was lucky enough to be in Phoenix, AZ for First Friday artwalk and the art exhibit at Parazol Studios called "Artcade." It featured custom painted and graphic design on video arcade games by 25-30 local and national artists. It was presented by "El Barcade" who is going to open a public arcade/bar, hopefully with all these cabinets. The art varied from cool to funny to amazing, but my favorite was this custom NBA JAM piece by Phoenix artist Sakoia. As you can see it features Charles Barkley "on fire" about to throw down on Vlade Divac and James Worthy with Dan Majerle looking on in the background. The distorted perspective and big fat orange/purple Air Max bring life to this mural while staying true to the classic arcade game.

This game is for sale through El Barcade and the artist Sakoia is available for any type of project from an album cover to a wall sized mural and paints in various styles appropriate to the medium. Even if you aren't in the market to commission an artist, please share my photo with Suns fans, gamers, and business owners who might enjoy it as much as me.
