Pixel Pushers – Art

Screen Shot 2014-04-02 at 17.17.21Abertay University’s Hannah Maclure Centre is holding an exhibition focusing on video games art and the artists who create it:

The artistic and creative qualities of digital artists can be overlooked by spectators, the popular misperception being that it is a purely technical or process driven art form and that somehow the, ‘computer does it all for you’. Pixel Pushers shows that concept artists draw inspiration from a tremendously diverse range of sources.

This exhibition collects artwork from 5 renowned and practicing artists – all of whom have strong ties with Dundee –  to demonstrate that be it for illustration, modelling, games or books, it is the artists’ unique vision and style that is the driving force behind their art, with technology simply another brush in their palette.

The Pixel Pushers exhibition runs from March 28th – May 9th.  It features the work of several noted artists from the games sector including:

  • 4J Studios
  • Ken Fee
  • Chris Goodswen
  • Gareth Hector
  • Ian McQue
  • Alex Ronald
