Square Enix announced today the lineup of esteemed artists who will debut original works on July 28 in New York City at the Wooster Street Social Club to bring to life the world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Some of them are: Jeremy Fish, Estevan Oriol, Jorge Alderete and Rico Deniro.
The New York City exhibition will run for two weeks. The exhibition will open with a launch that will play host to the who’s/who of the NYC art world. The following artists creations explore the game’s key storyline.
Jacques–Belletête, art director of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION said:
“Creating the right visual look and feel for DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION was of critical importance to help set the tone of the incredibly rich storyline and enhance the game’s universe. The art direction in the game is extremely distinctive, with its main elements being a polished blend of cyberpunk flavor and aesthetics from the Renaissance, and super slick contemporary designs such as modern architecture and geometrical art installations. It’s exciting to bring more focus to videogame inspired art and it will be really interesting to see how the theme of transhumanism in DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION is interpreted by the unique group of artists participating in this project.”
Estevan Oriol, co–founder and creative director of SA Studios Global added:
“With support from Square Enix, Juxtapoz and the art community, we’ve selected a group of artists from all disciplines who will explore both pro and anti–augmentation in their works, based on the captivating storyline from the game. This show will seamlessly combine several art forms and styles through the lens of the futuristic DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION world.”
