I came across an exceptionally badass art gallery earlier today, but instead of summarizing the intent of the gallery, let me let them do it for you:

151 Pokémon. 151 Artists.

151 artists have each selected and created original works of art inspired by each of the original 151 Pokémon. From Bulbasaur to Mew, each Pokémon is represented and injected with the artists’ own aesthetic, style, and creativity, exploring just what made those little Pokémon so interesting and fun to catch.

The Pokémon Battle Royale was a curated art show curated by Alyssa Nassner (@smalltalk) and Bryan Ische (@ishyyyyy) in the spring of 2012.
