Punch Out! at East Van Studios
Put your fist in the air for Michael Edward Miller, who’s bringing the world of low-brow video gaming to that of high-brow find art. His pop-up show, Punch Out!, runs Saturday (September 21) at East Van Studios (870 East Cordova Street). Using spray paint and stencils, he renders the now-primitive-seeming characters from old Nintendo games (hello, Mike Tyson) as giant paintings. If you’re nostalgic for your old console, head down between 4 and 7 p.m. for a trip down video-game memory lane.
