Every age has its artistic inspiration. Medieval artists exalted spiritual subjects. Modernists shifted their attention to humanity and the senses. For a generation of artists and fans today, our heroic subjects are Mario, Pikachu, Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Frodo and a legion of other iconic figures from the "geek" culture realms of movies, cartoons, video games and comics.

For the first time, Geek-Art collects the work of nearly 100 international illustrators, graphic designers, photographers and artists whose inspired interpretations of these beloved characters celebrate them with creative brilliance and a true fan's passion. Featuring more than 750 images, this lavish illustrated anthology showcases the inspired energy that drives pop culture and makes geeky fans of us all.

About the Author

Thomas Olivri grew up loving geek art and culture and never outgrew them. He is the creator of Geek-Art.net, a popular online pop culture community that features art created from these worlds, and hosts gallery shows of the work in Paris, where he lives.
