NVArt & CGSociety - taking it to a whole new level
NVIDIA's role in the computer graphics industry and its success are in no small part due to the vision and passion of its co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. It's Jen-Hsun who conceived NVArt as a way of celebrating NVIDIA's collaborative success with the creative artists they regard as their peers.
For its part the CGSociety leads the way in supporting, showcasing and gathering together the world’s leading digital artists. Through books (Ballistic Publishing), artists portfolios, training, forums, events and competitions CGSociety has heralded in an era where digital art and the artists who create it are receiving the global acclaim they rightly deserve.
Since its inception in 2008 NVArt has been driven equally by the CGSociety and NVIDIA. It’s been a potent mix and had inspired artists to create some of the most imaginative and stunning work the world has seen. We have also raised the digital art genre to a new level with exhibitions of NVArt in fine art galleries, such as the Tate Modern in London.
With this, the fifth NVArt competition we are taking NVArt to a much wider audience and to a whole new level.
Creative Director, NVIDIA.
President of the CGSociety.
