LOS ANGELES (August 3, 2011) — Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, announced details for the auction of a limited run of prints of works debuted at the DEUS EX®: HUMAN REVOLUTION™ art show last Thursday.
A total of 20 numbered and signed prints will be made available for each of the nine works unveiled at New York's Wooster Street Social Club. The exhibition will run until August 7th, while the prints will be sold via auction site CharityBuzz, with the proceeds going to funding further education in the arts.

The works they have created are inspired by the world of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION, Square Enix's upcoming game which deals with a future where transhumanism — artificial augmentation of the body — has become commonplace.
"The works are both a credit to the artists as well as to the vision behind the game," said Square Enix America vice president Ami Blaire. "It’s been great for us to share these bold and artistic interpretations with the public and collectors, as well as have a chance to give back to education in art and interactive entertainment."
Bidding closes on August 17th for the prints, which can be seen online at the CharityBuzz auction page: http://www.charitybuzz.com/auctions/humanrevolution.
