Into The Pixel is an annual juried art exhibition that brings together experts from the traditional fine art world and the interactive entertainment industry to display and discuss the art of the video game. 2012 will be the ninth showing of the Into The Pixel art collection, and attendees to E3 have been invited to the gallery opening next week at the Los Angeles Convention Centre. The 16 winners of this years collection were unveiled this week by The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA).

“The Academy is pleased to partner with the ESA to celebrate the finest art in video games from the year,” said Martin Rae, president, Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. “This year’s collection exhibits incredible creativity. We’re looking forward to unveiling this year’s collection at E3 and sharing it worldwide at other industry events!”
