Pokemon Art... Yer thats right!

Another night, only just home from work, Red Stripe in hand and its time to check the emails. This little beauty from Vice UK jumped out at me. It's an exhibition of art based on the new Pokemon game for Nintendo DS. Check the words and pictures care of Nicole at Vice.

Hey guys, hope you're well. We're putting on an art exhibition/party with Pokemon - well, Nintendo, really, who are putting out a new Pokemon game (and isn't it about time?) They asked a bunch of semi-famous artists to create Pokemon-themed art for this purpose and are giving away a Nintendo DS as well.

The event is going to have Filthy Dukes and Friendly Fires and Real Gold DJs and free booze and it's happening on the 24th of March in Shoreditch.

Let me know if you can write about this on your blog and send people to the website, and we'll put you on the list for the party. Easy.

Vice and Nintendo have commissioned seven artists to create a Pokémon inspired piece of artwork to celebrate Nintendo's newest Pokemon releases on the DS, and are holding an exhibition to showcase the works, from 24th - 31st March, at Blackall Studios. The exhibition opens with a big launch party on the 24th, full of Nintendo product for guests to demo, Pokemon inspired food, lots of booze and a stellar line-up of DJs: Filthy Dukes, Friendly Fires and Real Gold. The event will be guestlist only, attended by members of the press, select tastemakers from the Vice network, and competition winners. Go to see the work, find out more about the campaign and enter the competition.

And some pictures of the art:
