Mega Man Boss Battle Exhibition Artwork Now on Sale

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Worldwide shipping is available

While Capcom may be showing little love for its iconic Mega Man franchise, fans and those inspired by the games continually do so in the developer's place. One example is the Mega Man Boss Battle exhibition currently running at the Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco, a showing open until 31st March. It features a wide-range of pieces from artists, game designers, game journalists and in some cases individuals that combine all three skills; as a result it's an impressively diverse collection.

Naturally fan-art isn't exactly in short supply for the Mega Man franchise, but this collection does include some truly eye-catching pieces of work. They vary from fairly abstract paintings to others that look like "bit" productions, and even a holographic piece.

Of course, not all of us live close enough to visit the gallery — many of us aren't even on the same continent — but the full collection can be viewed online at the Gauntlet Gallery store, where the originals are on sale at very handsome prices, alongside a variety of prints at more affordable rates. The gallery delivers to the UK and Canada through the online checkout process, while those in other countries can enquire for a quote.

We'd encourage any Mega Man fan to browse the gallery's website to see all of the works, while GameSpot has produced a video exploring the gallery, while sharing the thoughts of the curator and some of the artists.

There are so many worthy Mega Man pictures in that exhibition, and you picked one of the worst ones.

Seriously, Mega Man is looking FUGLY there, and what's going on with his legs?

@RupeeClock Opinions and all that, I opted for a simple one rather than a couple of abstract ones I liked.

Anyway, as you say, lots of cool art pieces for people to look at, and the video gives some nice insight.

I think THIS is one thing a lot of the so-called "hardcore gamers" don't get: one reason games like Mega Man, Mario, and Zelda mean so much to us (esp., those of us who grew up in the 80s) is the fantastical art and creativity that goes into them. Call of Duty isn't nearly the "escape" these titles are - it's just gritty violence we already see in the real world.

@sir_Anthony
I was thinking the exact same thing. I guess it's better to assume he has a full life bar? Maybe?
Anyways, I don't really like this one either. My avatar pic is of a painting I made, BTW. It was a school project, but I ran out of time and had to leave the background just yellow.
