Red Bull Doodle Art was a worldwide art competition in which university students across the globe submitted doodles to be judged on style and creativity. In 2017, Red Bull invited these talented artists to experience their doodles in virtual reality with the first ever global VR gallery.
47 collegiate finalists from 42 countries traveled to San Francisco to learn VR and put their exceptional 2D skills to the test in a never-been-done 3D VR environment. The result was a never-before-seen Global VR Art Gallery that aimed at positioning Red Bull on the forefront of immersive technologies, helping shape the future of art.
