Sega Europe has joined forces with the UK's leading fine art publisher to create 'Sonic 25', a collection of 25 original pieces which pay tribute to Sonic the Hedgehog.
Sonic 25 sees a series of Washington Green artists - including Dan Lane, Paul Kenton, Frédéric Daty, Louis Sidoli, Stuart McAlpine Miller, Robert Oxley, Craig Davison, Keith Maiden and Nic Joly - re-imagine Sonic in their own unique style across a wide range of mediums.
Here's what Jason Rice, Director of Brand Licensing at Sega Europe, had to say:
This collaboration is a fitting finale to our year-long celebration of Sonic's 25th Anniversary. We wanted to create something truly unique to give fans and collectors the chance to view Sonic in a way never seen before. These incredibly talented artists along with the whole team at Washington Green have been a joy to work with. There is huge excitement and anticipation here at Sega at the prospect of revealing these stunning pieces of work to the world. We couldn't be more proud!
'Sonic 25' signed limited edition pieces will be available across Washington Green's network of 34 Castle Fine Art galleries in the UK from Friday 2nd December 2016. Each of these limited editions comes with a certificate of authenticity, co-signed by the artist and the one and only Naoto Ohshima - one of the creators of the Sonic series.
If you'd like to have a look at the art, the Sonic 25 exhibition will open at Castle Fine Art, South Molton Street from Friday 2nd December.
