SANTA CLARA, CA and ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA ─APRIL 24, 2008─NVIDIA and CGSociety today announced the winners of the latest NVArt digital art challenge, the second in a series of worldwide art competitions. The theme was "Art Space: Architecture and Landscape."
Artists from around the world were invited to submit computer-generated imagery of "awe-inspiring fusions" of architecture and landscapes, with an emphasis on imagination and artistic expression. The winning submissions can be viewed online at http://events.cgsociety.org/NVArt/02/winners.php.
"We invited artists to stand on the shoulders of giants like architect Frank Gehry and gaze into the far reaches of their imaginations," said Mark Snoswell, president of CGSociety, a global organization for digital artists. "Our artists have created wonderful places that are pure art, where one can wake each day to marvel at the play of light through fantastical spaces and at vibrant fusions of light, color, and texture."
Selected NVArt award winners will be on display at NVISION 08, the premier event for visual computing professionals and enthusiasts, on August 25-27, 2008 in San Jose, California.
