Geek Art Gets Ready For Their Next Show: “Geek Generation” – A Massive Event About Geek Culture

One of our all-time favorite sites, Geek Art, is about to partner with the city of Bourges in France Geek art logoand curate what looks to be another exceptional show.  Titled “Geek Generation” this one has a broad scope and tackles geek culture in all its wondrous forms. The entire “Geek Culture” from it’s beginnings to the current day is up for grabs which should result in some unique and interesting work.

The artists have been asked to create art that encompasses this massive theme with their work encompassing the meager beginnings to the current offerings such as:

  • from old arcade games up to Microsoft Kinect games
  • from King Kong to Pacific Rim
  • from NES to PS4

etc, etc, etc.  Here is what Thomas, the mastermind behind Geek Art, had to say about the project over on his site.

Geek-Generation-BourgesAre we all geeks ? At what age can you become a pop culture nerd ? Do everybody have an inner geek ? What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything ? Well, I’m afraid I don’t have all the answers to those questions, but you may find a few clues during “Geek Generation”, an art show curated by Geek-Art and dedicated to all forms of pop culture, and their evolution through time. From the 8th of february to the 29th of march, 2014, Geek-Art is partner of the city of Bourges via an art show at L’Espace Numérique de Bourges. Mangas, video games, cult movies, books, comics, people will find out that they well may be geeker than they expected… With original artworks by Patrick Connan, Andry Rajoelina, Chris B Murray, JB Roux, Mat Weller, Nicolas Beaujouan, Nicolas Meda, Orioto, PJ Mc Quade, Robert Fear, S2LART & Yves-José Malgorn, but also artworks from the Geek-Art Store by Andrew Wilson, Greg Guillemin, Lerms et Nicolas Bannister ! I will show you, of course, more artworks in the days to come… Get ready !

The first work that has been revealed comes from Poster Posse member Patrick Connan.  Patrick’s theme of choice was “Wargames” and includes three brilliant images for Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer 40K and Call Of Duty.
