    SE to Host Dx ART SHOW, NYC, 28 July 2011 - UPDATE: Charity Buzz Auction NOW LIVE!

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution is coming to life in New York City. Square Enix hired artists from various mediums to put together original works based on Deus Ex: Human Revolution's futuristic setting, dealing with the moral and ethical issues of artificial body augmentation. Each artist will put together one poster style image, inspired by either the pro-augmentation or anti-augmentation factions featured in the game.

    Proceeds from the sale of the artwork will be put towards supporting further education in the arts.

    Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, art director of Deus Ex: Human revolution, said in a press release that "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."

    The art will be on display for two weeks at the Wooster Street Social Club starting July 28.

    New article and video:

    "My Tour of Deus Ex Art Ended in the Bathroom"

    I stopped by today, a day after a raucous charity and promotional event for the art and the game and got a quick tour. Our guide for the tour is Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, art director of the new Deus Ex. We started by checking out his own unusual numbered tattoos and we wrapped, oddly, in the bathroom.

    Do want. My friends wanted to go to NYC sometime this summer, and I can't see why the 28th wouldn't be as good a date as any.

    That sounds cool. I'll buy a load of spray paint and make some triangles on my garage. I regret not doing something like that for my art project.

    What a shame.

    I'm going. The event info is cryptic though.
    Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.

    Why are such things ALWAYS on the other side of the pond?

    Ah well, hope it boasts a bit of the NYC setting of DX itself... on the spot! (The closest spot to me where such an on-location exhibition can be done, is in Paris.)

    All sounds a bit vague, but really interesting. It'd be fantastic if EM decided to start "officially" filming these events, especially for something as visual as this. They wouldn't necessarily need to spend loads on editing, they could just chop some interesting footage together.

    It's real nice that the proceeds are going to further education for the arts. Respect.

    If they are poster style does that mean we may see them in the store?

    I wish I was able to attend this, along with all the other cool stuff that has been happening during the development of this game. Oh well, at least the game itself is coming to my country

    To all who are attending however, I hope it is awesome!

    EDIT/UPDATE:





    From Juxtapoz Magazine:

    As we gear up for the Square Enix Deus Ex: Human Revolution contemporary art show this week, we bring you two unreleased images from the show: original works by N8 Van Dyke (below) and Jorge Alderete (above) inspired by the futuristic storyline of DE: HR, which hits shelves for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation video game and entertainment systems on August 23.

    We’ll be in New York on Thursday – July 28 at the Wooster Street Social Club as the show makes it debut and artists such as Estevan Oriol, Jeremy Fish, Sam Flores, Rob Abeyta and others bring this video game to life through original prints. Oh and remember that Jeremy Fish design we showed you last week, we were able to secure 10 T-shirts with that image, courtesy of our friends at SA Studios, to giveaway to our readers. The first 10 people to email us their mailing address and the word "JUX" to Events@SAStudiosGlobal.com will win a shirt. Proceeds from the show benefit art education in schools.

    Visit www.CharityBuzz.com for more information starting August 1.
