The Art Department Berlin 2023

Esben Lash is a Copenhagen-based illustrator & concept artist working in the entertainment industry. He has worked with the biggest game and art studios around the world. Riot Games in Los Angeles, Sixmorevodka in Berlin and he currently works for IO Interactive in Copenhagen.

As a true storyteller his passion lies in evoking emotion through well-crafted imagery and composing stories that resonate. Working for a decade in the video game industry has exercised his technical muscles – as he put it himself. And…. ” Failures are no strangers—I’ve learned and grown thanks to them. A good challenge is like music to my ears.” 

Adam Kupratis / Art Manager, R&D at Riot Games about Esben: “He is as talented as he is respectful, polite, and patient. His dedication to the craft of illustration inspires others while always finding a way to improve despite appearing to have little room for improvement. He is a truly amazing artist, developer, and source of calm.”
