While we may not always admit it, everyone loves the bad guy. Years after the closing credits roll on our favorite videogames, memories of classic boss encounters like Psycho Mantis, Kefka, Ganon, and Pyramid Head live on in infamy. Light Grey Art Lab’s newest exhibition, BOSS RUSH!, celebrates our love/hate relationship with the bad guys. The exhibition features new artwork by 115+ artists, illustrators and concept artists from around the world. The large-scale prints are inspired by their favorite battles, epic bosses, and bad guys!
