Art dealership Cook & Becker has recently opened a new online gallery and exhibition space that features limited edition art works from various video games. The company is looking to curate and sell these exclusive collections, and has the support of several notable video game artists and designers.

Some of the featured artists include the Julien Renoult (artist on Team Fortress 2), Jesse van Dijk (concept artist at Bungie Studios), Maciej Kuciara (concept artist at Naughty Dog), and Killzone developer Guerrilla Games.

"It is undeniable that some of the best and most influential artists are working within the entertainment and design industries," explained Maarten Brands, co-founder of Cook & Becker.

"Also this new group of autonomous and post-autonomous artistic talent often works completely digital. We wanted to do something with this. These types of art have not yet been represented well enough... something we aim to rectify with truly some of the best international artists working in these spaces."

Cook & Becker aims to highlight artists in other entertainment sectors in the exhibition as well, such as film and comic books.
