Fine Art[Fine Art](https://kotaku.com/c/fine-art) is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios. If you’re in the business and have some art you’d like to share, [get in touch!](mailto:plunkett@kotaku.com)  

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 Centre. 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.
