New exhibition Multiplayer is celebrating the rich visual language of computer gaming, showing that there’s a lot more to it than pixels and neons.
The works in the show are from illustration agency JSR, and illustrators featured include Allan Deas, Benji Charnock, Carla Lucena, Lydia Shireff, Marguerite Sauvage, MiddleBoop, Raid 71, Shaun Mills and Simon Wild.
Gordon Reid, aka Middle Boop, says, ‘I would certainly say the use of colour in contemporary illustration has a lot to thank retro video games and its packaging for.
‘Also in terms of style, some of the major [illustration] players have built their careers on video games styles.’
