Originally disseminated in blog form, Jon Rafman’s Brand New Paint Job is a project where famous paintings are used to wallpaper amateur 3D models collected from Google 3D Warehouse. The project moves through a succession of hyper-real, lobbies, office spaces, cars and lounge rooms using a virtual camera. The resulting images reference the world of interior design magazines, 3D gaming, social media mashups and synthetic photography. Rafman will be re-working the project as BRAND NEW BRAND NEW PAINT JOB specifically for The Wall.
Jon Rafman is an artist, filmmaker, and essayist who explores the impact of technology on contemporary consciousness. His artwork has gained international attention and he is widely known for exhibiting found images from Google Street View (9-Eyes).
