Into the Pixel 2008 Winners

The 2008 Into the Pixel Art Exhibition is an exploration and celebration of the art of the videogame, curated by interactive industry veterans and experts from the art establishment.

It features sixteen 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.

The 2008 Into the Pixel Art Collection premiered digitally in June on their website, but the exhibition opens to the public at the E for All Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center, October 3 - 5, 2008. The media got a private viewing at this year's E3 2008 convention as well.

Video Games are an influential aspect of pop-culture and entertainment whose impact goes beyond the digital arts to influence perspectives in art, cinematography, literature, and even fashion. Behind every game character and dynamic environment are artists whose talents birthed the image seen in the 3-D world.
