FreeStyle Games has announced that a piece of art created for their forthcoming PSP and PS2 videogame has been selected for the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) exhibition, Into The Pixel.

Chosen by a panel of judges from over 150 submissions, Freestyle's piece, "Darkness" will feature in the exhibition as one of only 16 images selected as a representation of the best examples of art in videogames.

Jamie Jackson, Art Director of FreeStyle Games commented, "This is great recognition for us and for Chippy (the artist responsible for the piece). We set out 12 months ago to create an art style that you would instantly associate with B-Boy. Not only have we achieved that, we have also achieved praise for our peers."

Now in its third year, the Into The Pixel videogame art exhibition is hosted by The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS), the Electronic Entertainment Expo and The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Prints and Drawings Council).

The selected artwork will be printed by a Master Printer, framed and hung in the Into the Pixel Gallery at the E3 expo in Los Angeles next week, where more than 60,000 attendees and the general public will have the opportunity of viewing it.

B-Boy art "Darkness" will be unveiled at the Into the Pixel Opening Reception to be held at E3 on Wednesday, May 10 in the ITP Gallery/Concourse Foyer at the LA Convention Centre.
