Fine Art: 2016’s Best* Video Game Concept Art 

Fine Art: 2016’s Best* Video Game Concept Art 

Every year, around the time of E3, an exhibition called Into The Pixel is held, which celebrates the work of professional video game artists. With a panel made up of veterans from companies like Blizzard and 343 Studios, it’s a great way of recognising the best work in the field. While there’s no way to ever say this stuff is literally the best — it’s art, who cares! — the selection of winners each year nevertheless tend to come from a quality selection of artists, regardless of whether they’re working at a big AAA studio or toiling on a tiny indie project.

If you’re around LA during E3, these pieces will be on display June 14-16 at the LA Convention Center. Or, if you’re not, you can see them all below.

Note that while this is the 2016 edition of the exhibition, it’s mid-year placement means that some games — like The Witcher 3 — are being represented from 2015, while others — like Dishonored 2 — aren’t even out yet.


Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios.

  • I’d love to have video game concept art hanging on my walls… How do artists feel about their work that ultimately sits on the periphery to the final product?

  • Fine art, aka new desktop backgrounds to add to the collection.

    Love these, thanks guys.
