Game Over – Art of the Gamer Generation

Illustration for article titled Game Over – Art of the Gamer Generation

Giant Robot specializes in "Asian American Pop Culture & Beyond," which means that this is the store to go to to score obscure figurines, bizarre stationary and the ultimate Hello Kitty accessories. This month, Giant Robot is also the place to go for video game art. Starting on October 11 and running all the way through October 29, the Game Over art show will be on display at Giant Robot in San Francisco – featuring such artists as Brian Ralph, Ben King, Ako Castuera and Aiyana Udesen. If you don't know who any of those people are, don't feel bad. Just trust me when I say they're artists and that they love video games. Don't believe me? Check out some of the pieces after the jump.

Seriously it's pretty bad. The Ico one is interesting until it becomes obvious he had no idea what the game was about/never played it, and instead decided to smoke weed and try to emulate MC Escher.

I like the fourth one, though.
