Golden Axe is an official limited edition print drawn by artist Gerald Parel based on the classic SEGA game series Golden Axe™. Gerald Parel made this print for Cook & Becker and SEGA using the original games' designs, logo's etc. from the SEGA archives as inspiration.
When you purchase this Certified Art Giclee unframed the paper size is 24 x 36" or 60 x 90 cm with a small white border so that it fits affordable standard frames available anywhere in the world. For the Dibond mounted finish we trim the white edges so the final size of the artwork is 22 x 34" / 55 x 85 cm.
About this project
Cook & Becker asked some of the hottest artists and designers working in entertainment and video games today if they wanted to draw a print of their favorite retro SEGA games. The idea was to create a series of beautiful prints that would capture the heart of these classic brands and what they meant for the artists and people playing and growing up with them.
Artist Gerald Parel says about his Golden Axe artwork: "When I was a teenager, I was very much into Conan and all things barbarian. So when around that time I played Golden Axe, even only for a few hours, it left a precious mark in my memory. It was THE barbarian game in my book. Then decades later, I noticed Mastodon's (a metal band) riff man was playing on a Gibson called Golden Axe and it brought back so many good memories! The choice to pick Golden Axe was then obvious when I got in touch with Cook & Becker."
Going forward Cook & Becker will work with SEGA to periodically release new giclee prints from a variety of SEGA games.
