Sonic the Hedgehog Art Collection
For the 25th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog, SEGA has prepared several events (including the infamous party in July). One of them is the Sonic The Hedgehog Art Collection, in collaboration with Washington Green (a fine art publisher located in the United Kingdom).
Here’s how SEGA describes this unique project:
Critically acclaimed artists have come together to produce a collection of fine art pieces inspired by the iconic video game character, and his 25 year legacy. The collection is designed to be a unique celebration and tribute to Sonic comprising a diverse range of original works executed through a number of mediums and creative styles, including sculpture, painting and mixed media.
The best part? Some of these original pieces will be reproduced, signed, and sold as limited editions through Washington Green’s Castle Fine Art galleries across the United Kingdom. The pieces will come with a certificate of authenticity (hand signed by Naoto Oshima).
