THIS CITYSCAPE DOES NOT EXIST
“…places I have been to but will never go to”
These are my first paintings using reference photographs generated from AI algorithms from my own travel photos. Using hundreds of my European travel images I created more familiar street scapes in the vein of ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com using two types of GANs (wGAN & cycleGAN). What I find so exciting about this process is for years I thought about how could I summarize entire adventures into one image trying collage, paint and digital edit but always came back to the photo. The GAN allows me to create familiar places with characteristics from the entire set of images. They become places I have been to but will never go to.
The painting will be shipped with the AI generated photograph that I used as reference.
