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're highlighting the artists taking part in this year’s Into the Pixel exhibit leading up to the end of the DICE conference on February 11. Read on to find out about artist Richard Anderson and his Guild Wars 2 artwork entitled, "Knight March." (Click artwork image for a high-resolution version.)
In 2000 Richard moved from Montana to go to the Art Institute of Seattle. In 2002 he graduated with a associates in computer animation and worked on finding a job for a few months until he landed at Arena Net. There he worked primarily on environment props and textures, and continued onto the concept team, and now works on the cinematic team. In addition to his day job, he likes to take on other projects from book covers, t-shirts, snowboards and comics. Richard has always loved the media arts, and feels very privileged to be a part of this industry.
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.
