Back in April of 2011, French street artist TILT was part of the "Infamous" exhibition with Ceet, Mist and Kong; a show that premiered TILT's interpretations of Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach from the Super Mario Bros. video game franchise. These Nintendo characters, rendered in TILT's bubble letter throw-up graffiti style, have garnered a cult-like attention by fans not only of graffiti writing but also of the classic 8-bit game. TILT has now partnered with limited edition printmaking company 1xRUN to produce these original designs, as well as one for Wario, as a series of 17" x 17" Archival Pigment prints on 330gsm Fine Art paper. Each design will be limited to an edition of 100 copies, signed & numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity, and released on a weekly basis for the month of August at 12 Noon EST: "Luigi" on August 2nd, "Princess Peach" on August 9th, "Wario" on August 16th and "Mario" on August 23rd. The prints will individually cost $100 a piece, though — also being released on August 2nd, 2012 at 12 Noon EST — there will be a "Combo Pack" of all four prints, limited to only 10 sets, for $400.
