Exposition Of Original Assassin’S Creed Artwork From Ubisoft To Debut In Paris’ Arludik Gallery.
Today Ubisoft announced that Arludik, a world renowned art gallery in Paris that specializes in film, comic and video game fine art, will display a month long exposition of original digital canvases created by the teams of artists at the various Ubisoft development studios that have worked on the multi-million selling Assassin’s Creed video game franchise. Assassin’s Creed: The Exposition will feature original concept art that was used to inspire the ambiance, characters and buildings displayed in all three Assassin’s Creed video games – Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II and the upcoming November 2010 release of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
The exposition will include 35 individual works of art never before seen by the public. The canvases have been appraised by a fine art expert and auctioneer and will be on sale for prices ranging from €600 to €2,000. Two works of art have also been chosen and will be printed as limited editions lithographs in a series of 149 each, for sale at €80. Each canvas will be stamped with the Ubisoft Studios seal and comes with a certificate of authenticity while both the canvases and lithographs will be hand-signed by Mohamed Gambouz graphic art director at Ubisoft. Ubisoft’s proceeds from the sale will be donated to MO5, a charitable organization that preserves the history and culture of video games.
“Ubisoft is honored to showcase the outstanding artwork by the talented designers of Assassin’s Creed in the world famous Arludik gallery,” said Serge Hascoët, chief creative officer at Ubisoft. “This is the first time ever that Ubisoft’s creative teams have been featured in a fine art gallery, and this exposition proves that the creative work of the artists in the video game industry inspires the passion of gamers the world over.”
