The annual Into The Pixel collection returns to E3 and is just the place to relax and savour some beautiful, video game-inspired art.
The exhibition, which is co-produced by the Entertainment Software Association and the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, features 14 works of art that will be displayed at E3 this week
One of the best things about Into the Pixel is that it offers a respite from the chaos found elsewhere at E3. There’s something about a gallery that makes people shut up for fifteen minutes, and take a little time to appreciate the artistic talent on display. It’s a recommended stop-off for all E3 attendees.
This year’s selection features some stunning works that encompass visual creativity, storytelling and atmosphere from games including, Unravel, No Man’s Sky, League of Legends and Far Cry Primal.
You can see the full list of winners are listed below but here are a few of our favourites.
