digital artist jon rafman is presenting his ongoing project ‘brand new paint job’ at the armory show 2014 in new york, a series which appropriates the renowned artworks of master painters into the three-dimensional digital realm. the collection is comprised of humble, ready-made interiors sourced from google 3D warehouse, like bedrooms, auditoriums, classrooms and kitchens. bitmap textures, chroma and decorative motifs have been collected from famous historical paintings, and surface the façade of each object placed within the home or commercial dwelling. picasso’s pink and gray ‘les demoiselles d’avignon’, monet’s hazy ‘water lilies’ and lichtenstein’s saturated dots act like a skin, shrink wrapping around bar stools, chairs, stairs and eclectic pieces garnered from a digital, online community of objects.
