BJÖRN HURRI

The Art Department Berlin 2024

Award-winning concept artist and art director, Björn Hurri has built a formidable reputation working in the entertainment industry over the past twenty years. From his base in Riga, Latvia he’s worked on AAA games and films like God of War, Love Death + Robots, Bioshock, League of Legends, Horizon Zero Dawn, Total War and many, many more.

Björn has joined us before, taking the stage in Eindhoven in 2023 so we can already promise you this isn’t one to miss in Berlin. This time around, he’ll dive into his experience working on various Diablo IPs, diving into his process, and sharing his thoughts on working within a team all while giving us peeks behind-the-scenes along the way.

Within concept art, Björn specialises in IP development, visual development and production art. His work spans across genres, from character to props to environments, but he’s always known for his imaginative, intricately designed solutions, his speed and attention to detail.

Education has always been important to Björn. Since 2008 he has been running classes and workshops internationally, such as the popular character design class at CG Master Academy. Independently, Björn has released two art books (Abominations and Oro), been developing his own IP for the film and game industries, as well as art directing the independent game The Other Brothers.
