Remember the awesome art exhibition that proved that video game graphics could both inspire and be art? We covered it here if you missed it.. Well some of the artwork is being auctioned off for the Special Effect Charity that helps disabled gamers and their carers to get more out of life.
The London Games Art Exhibition
held last month featured a range of great art including works from Dishonored
and Batman Arkham City
Money raised goes to SpecialEffect, a hugely wonderful cause. Nick Streeter of SpecialEffect explained to SPOnG that, "SpecialEffect are very grateful to all the wonderful people who have donated this fantastic collection of games art and hope that gamers across the world will bid generously to help SpecialEffect make a difference to lives of disabled young people. As a parent of a child with a disability who the charity help I have seen first hand the difference being able to play games with friends and family has on self esteem and confidence and know that every penny raised from this auction will really make a difference."
All proceeds from the sale will be given in full to SpecialEffect, a unique charity doing whatever it takes to help everyone with disabilities to have a better quality of life through games, art and technology.
The collection will be made available to bid on in four batches, with the first going online now, with a further three batches featuring art from the exhibition being added to the auction every Monday until the 3rd of December. Included in the initial batch are three signed pieces from Batman: Arkham City, two Fable 3 pieces signed by Peter Molyneux and the artists, a signed Metal Gear Solid ‘Raiden’ canvass, plus pieces from Tomb Raider, Dishonored, Moshi Monsters and Runescape, among many others.
The London Games Art auction is taking place for the next four weeks from today at www.londongamesart.com
, with additional pieces of art from the exhibition being added every Monday until the 3rd of December.
