Artist Recreates Historic Paintings By Using Color Palettes And Algorithms

Dimitris Ladopoulos, an Athens-based motion graphics artist, reimagined these wildly cool, century-old paintings and used a series of algorithms to achieve each unique color palette.

Houdini, a 3D animation software, designed to produce random geometric patterns was used turn century-old paintings into digitally revitalized portraits by examining each color palette.

Ladopoulos began with Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn’s portrait of Johannes Wtenbogaert and “digitally” observed the thousands of shades in the painting. The second painting was of Rembrandt Peale’s daughter, Rosalba.

Together, these paintings make two digital compositions with a contemporary look while keeping the historical nature of the painting intact.
