Ranging from $130 to $250, the Europe-based art dealer have produced a limited run of art prints of “The Last of Us.” The prints based on the game’s promotional and concept art are hand-numbered, signed, and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. A few of the prints available at Cook & Becker can be seen in the slideshow posted above.
In late June of last year, Penny Arcade Report talked with Maarten Brands, who works at the Cook & Becker art gallery, about the dealer’s interest in producing video game artwork.
There was this bafflement that video game art was so unrepresented in the art world while at the same time being so influential, and seeing these really interesting parallels between what game artists are doing and industrial design, architecture, landscape painting, photography etc. Also the notion of concept art, which often expresses a visual idea in it purest form without gameplay or commercial constraints was very interesting to us.
Art prints for “The Last of Us” will begin shipping on September 19.
