Bioshock 2 illustrators Opus Artz join Tiga

Opus Artz Joins TIGA - press release

Bioshock2 Illustrators Join TIGA


Versatile British art studio wants to raise the profile of 'games as art'
London-based art outsourcing group Opus Artz – which has recently produced concept art for Bioshock 2 – is the latest company to join games industry group Tiga.
The firm has international clients based in the film, game and publishing industries, with services ranging from key art to industrial design and concept art.
As well as providing its services for Bioshock 2, the group is also playing a part in Southpeak Interactive’s Edge of Twilight project.
The company’s founder, Dr Chee Ming Wong, said the group wanted to join Tiga to “raise the profile of video games as the 8th art”, and at the same time linked that concept to a speech made by Denis Dyack.
