Graffiti Artist Shok-1 Shows The World Pac-Man’s Insides

Pac-Man has been endlessly gobbling up power pellets for over 30 years, but have you ever stopped to think about where they all go? Inspired by the icon himself, graffiti artist Shok-1’s new print “The Consumer” finally answers this eternal question, giving us our first look at the yellow puck’s insides.

“The Consumer” made its debut earlier this year in Germany as the mural seen in the header image. The artist created the translucent X-Ray effect using freehand techniques; no stencils or tape were implemented.

Prints of “The Consumer” will be available starting December 5 on Shok-1’s website, but you’ll have to act fast. The run is limited to 160 prints. For more information and a look at some more psychedelic art, check out Shok-1’s website – The Feed
