Power Mac Center’s Art Ambassadors (see above) are (left to right) Leeroy New for sculpture, Nikki Luna for visual arts, Bru Nada of Electrolychee for graphic design, Jay Contreras for photography and Marcus Nada of Electrolychee for graphic design.

The new ambassadors were chosen “because they have been making a name in the art industry, bringing art closer to local audiences now more than ever,” said Power Mac Center Marketing Director Joey Alavarez. These four artists evaluated and selected the winners of Power Mac Center’s first multimedia awards competition held at the Ayala Museum, Makati City.

The Power Mac Center ambassadors have conducted free workshops and live demos at select Power Mac Center classrooms in the past two months. The weekly workshops included demos on using Adobe Photoshop, and a Wacom artist showcased features of and techniques available on the latest Wacom tablets.
