Postmasters Gallery



Titled Due to the Image, the exhibition consists of the first series of paintings made by Alessandro Giannì in collaboration with his custom-made artificial intelligence program named Vasari (after Giorgio Vasari, 1511-1574).

Alessandro Giannì merges the analog nature of painting with new media, AI, Internet and digital culture in order to explore the connections between the digital universe, new artificial realities, and the dreamlike and introspective world of human beings, past and present. He collects various aesthetic fragments and historical symbols from the web, culture and social networks and twists them into a new kaleidoscopic, digitized and abstracted visual language of his own, while holding on to the most classic form of art, the Painting.
