Power Mac Center's four Art Ambassadors, Jay Contreras, Electrolychee (Marcus Nada and Bru Nada), Nikki Luna and Leeroy New, represent cutting edge artistry and excellence in the Philippine contemporary art scene through photography, graphic design, visual arts and sculpture, respectively.
"We selected the four artists because they have been making a name in the art industry, bringing art to the local audiences now more than ever," said Power Mac Center Marketing Director Joey Alvarez on the exhibit with the theme "Defying the Everyday Grind". "They represent the now and the future of Philippine art."
For the finale, a special installation was created to showcase the collaboration of the country's finest artists which embodies the Pixeworx. This project art will house a unique concept by capturing art in every way a Filipino enjoys his lifestyle.
|During the event, Power Mac Center opened a gallery to the public which displays the 4 Art Ambassadors works and of the 20 Pixelworx competition finalists.|
Alvarez explained, "Apple products are the perfect instruments for these artists to create, promote and showcase their art. We want these artists to dare to defy conventions through their creative digitally enhanced art."
Chosen by the Art Ambassadors themselves, the 6 winners among from 20 finalists will receive prices including iPads, Wacom tablets and Power Mac Center gift certificates.
