• NOV employee Sage Hansen's "Guidance" painting was chosen as the cover of the June 2014 edition of Offshore Engineer Magazine.

    The painting, under OE’s headline “The art of HSEQ,” was part of a series Sage painted for NOV’s art gallery at our Offshore Technology Conference exhibition booth.

    The series will be auctioned off at NOV’s second annual Field of Dreams Gala on June 7th along with the other artwork featured at our OTC booth’s art gallery. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to NOV’s longstanding Derricks and Diamonds charity, which has already donated nearly $1.7 million to fight pediatric cancer over the past nine years.

    Sage joined NOV in August of 2013 as a 3D Animator and already played a large role in preparing for OTC. He graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Visualization, a degree which encompasses coursework in architecture, graphic design, art, animation, and many other subjects.

    Sage said the style of the paintings was inspired by the music he was listening to at the time he created them, which was a band called, Daft Punk, the retro-futurist electronic duo from France.
