The 2011 Into the Pixel exhibit features twenty works of video game art, selected by a panel of jurors from a field of submissions gleaned from artists around the world. The exhibition offers an opportunity for published video and computer game artists to be reviewed and recognized by the public and by their peers in both the fine art and video game worlds.
We'll be highlighting the artists taking part in this year’s Into the Pixel video over the next two weeks leading up to the end of the DICE conference on February 11. Read on to find out about artist Aaron Kambeitz, and his piece from ModNation Racers. (Click for a high-resolution image.)
This featured artist is Aaron Kambeitz, and making pictures has always been his passion. Aside from full time positions at Relic Entertainment and United Front Games, he has been a freelance concept illustrator for most of the last decade. Prior to that, he was a lead artist and art director. As a freelancer, Kambeitz specializes in pre-production development, and has the privilege of working with many teams at many different studios on new projects. Kambeitz’ main source of inspiration is light and color and spend most of his working hours trying to recreate the scenarios that induce a sort of ecstasy.
Now in its seventh year, Into the Pixel is the one annual opportunity for video and computer game artists to have their work critically reviewed by experts in both the digital and fine art worlds. The 2011 Into the Pixel Exhibition will premiere in June at E3 in Los Angeles.
