“Re-ymagined’ by Ymage works creative studio is an art project that digitally renders the reality of famous paintings before they started to draw reinterpreting light, textures, strokes, and patterns of famous artworks.
Every artist creates their own style to convey their perception of reality, they filter the world through the prism of their unique vision. But what did they actually see?
The idea appeared when Yulia Pidlubnyak of Ymage works thought about photography physics to master photo-realistic rendering production. “At that moment I thought, how would one reinterpret paintings,” says Yulia.
These renderings were modeled in 3ds max, using forest pack plugin for vegetation and VRay as the rendering engine followed by post-production in photoshop.
“Aside from illustrating their environment, painters have also translated their impression of light, textures, and moods onto the canvas. this project reverses the process into a digital format.”
After an initial, quick experiment with Van Gogh’s Cafe Terrace, she looked for well-known artworks with compelling backgrounds, interesting lighting, and a unique style.
That’s how she arrived at the vivid work of Hopper, Wood, and Wyeth. Her recreations of these artists’ works are the most interesting of the series, with their architecturally strong framing and geometric linework.
