The art of Fuco Ueda

March 28th, 2010 by Michael

One of the artists whose work inspired the design of the Red Girls and helped us defined the atmosphere of The Path was Fuco Ueda. Her pictures of girls who all look like each other, as if they were family or maybe even multiple versions of the same person, greatly spoke to our feelings about our little family of Red Girls. Miss Ueda’s combination of the surreal and the horrific with the sensual and the innocent encouraged our own. Especially the recurring theme of desire -a desire that almost always leads to some form of pain (if only bloody knees)- felt very appropriate.

We had the honor of interview Fuco Ueda through our six protagonists. You can read the result here.

Interview with Ray Caesar

March 24th, 2010 by Auriea

Ray Caesar: Blessed

When creating the art style for The Path, we were influenced by several wonderful artists. We are trying to interview them all. Our interview with Lisa Falzon was published a while ago. And the interview with Ray Caesar was done in that same period. But we never got around to publishing it. What better moment than the first anniversary of The Path to share this very insightful and inspiring interview with one of the world’s most imaginative contemporary artists!

People think I paint pictures of children… I don’t! I paint pictures of the human soul… that alluring image of the hidden part of ourselves… some call them ghosts or spirits but I see them as the image of who we truly are, made manifest with all the objects and bruises that filled the story of each life.

I look at the game industry today and see only one game… it starts the same and ends the same and it’s sold in a variety of names and packages and has no mystery because it is not utilizing creativity as well as it could…

Enjoy the interview!

Interview with Lisa Falzon

February 6th, 2009 by Michael

The design of the characters of The Path was inspired by the work of several artists and illustrators. As a way of paying tribute to these people, we are inviting them for a short interview, conducted by the six Red Girls themselves. We’re also asking them if they can pick one of the characters and make a drawing inspired by her design. As a way of making the circle complete.

We discovered the work of Lisa Falzon very early in the production of The Path. She was making works like these at that time:

Very inspiring work. I remember asking her if she would want to design the box art for The Path when it was ready. She said yes. :)

As our production got going, Lisa Falzon’s work evolved but continued to inspire. She developed an entirely unique technique. A new form of digital collage that she used to create fascinating images like these:

Her work is provocative and a little bit naughty while at the same time sexy in a very natural almost unaware fashion. Much like Ginger, the character from The Path that she chose to draw.
