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 exhibit over the next two weeks leading up to the end of the DICE conference on February 11. Read on to find out about artist Daniel Dociu, and his Guild Wars 2 artwork entitled, "Order of Chaos Temple." (Click image for larger version.)
