MAN-E-NEWS// The “Game Over” Video Game Culture Art Exhibition at GR2…

This past Saturday saw the opening of Giant Robot‘s latest group exhibition, the video game themed “Game Over”. Featuring well over 90 artist from the world of low brow art including Grody Shogun, Luke Cheuh, Peter Kato and Martin Hsu, the huge show covered a wide variety of mediums including custom toys, original sculptures, prints and paintings. Standout pieces for us have got to be Luke “Grody” Rook’s Mario Bros Monster/EM customs, plus the wall hung “Yerren” board game from Sean Chao (both pictured below)… head over to the Giant Robot Flickr for a better look- this thing is huge!

Alongside the massive collection of art, Giant Robot is also playing host to a selection of indie games this month, including the works of programmers Beau Blythe and Shelby Cinca who have been creating a game with Game Over participants Sean Chao and Jeni Yang… If you’re in the LA area, be sure to pop down before the show’s June 27th close and have a look (and play!)…
