We've been talking about this for a number of months. Creating digital fine art using some of the newest art apps available. Pikazo was one, iColorama another. But this project was done in Topaz to allow for full resolution prints. We created 29 large works of art, stretched over frames and displayed on the new office walls at First Choice Packaging in Fremont, Ohio.
They had a lot of empty walls and wanted to create a gallery of art relevant to their business. So, working with the conservative photos they had in their assets from print and web work, we started getting all painterly on them. The final canvas prints (printed by Dr. Graphx, www.drgraphx.com) were 3' x 4'. (I will certainly add a "gallery" photo when one becomes available.)
About the app: The masters like Monet, Van Gogh, and Cézanne concerned themselves with feeling and emotion in their art. Even though they were likely absolutely capable of photorealistically reproducing their subjects, they chose to show the subject like they felt it, not as it objectively appeared. And that’s why it’s so easy to tell the difference between the masters—because they painted as a reflection of inner beings. That's deep.
A completed work of art can have thousands of brushstrokes. Topaz Impression transforms your photos by authentically turning them into art, the way a real painter would: painting brushstrokes one at a time. Impression can paint over 10,000 brushstrokes in less than a second, all while completely following your artistic direction. Design used that tool and created affordable paintings for the client. That's technology at work in the design-
place. That said, the art's mind then becomes not the execution, but the selection of which data-driven painting captures something in the result which is art.
Got any blank walls in your office crying out for a very affordable masterpiece?
