Signs of the times

How multimedia content is providing the defining images of this era

Contemporary content is now an official work of art

From cave paintings to online galleries, art is evolving. Artists are embracing new ways of creating their content and content created for new mediums is being, rightly, seen as art.

Video game art is a case in point. Thanks to technological advances, graphics have come a long way since the days of Pacman. As a result, graphic artists and designers can give free rein to their talents, creating interactive works of art that are not only engaging from a user point of view, but are as indicative of our current era as anything produced during the height of the Renaissance or Impressionist periods.

The artistic merit of this content is also now being recognised in the form of galleries and exhibitions. Video game art has been on display in the UK as part of the London Games Festival and is now set to be auctioned off to raise money for charity.

Featuring a combination of the old (the original concept artwork for Sonic the Hedgehog), the new (designs for Batman: Arkham City) and the yet to be seen (illustrations from the next instalment of the Tomb Raider series), it is proof positive that quality content doesn’t just move with the times, but it defines those times.
