The making of a unique collection

From the artist studio to the blockchain.
Follow the team around artist Yadegar Asisi during the creation process of the series.

First there was a painting

For his Panorama of the Impressionist Era, Yadegar Asisi painted a huge 6 metre wide oil painting of the Place de la Cathédrale in Rouen, which was digitised and exhibited as a 30×100 metre circular panoramic installation.

“Our aim was to transfer the essence of an oil painting into a medium that corresponds to
our time.”

The Digital Output reimagined

Testing many different approaches to capturing the essence of an analogue oil painting in a digital artwork, the canvas was meticulously photographed at a macro level, providing the basis for high-resolution and true-to-life textures and colour rendering.

“This is a digital tribute to the beauty of oil on canvas.”

Yadegar Asisi


Using a combination of macro photography, 3D depth mapping and motion design, sections of the painting were digitally composed, remastered and animated. The result is six works of art that showcase mesmerising topographies of fine textures and splashes of colour reminiscent of the silhouettes of selected Impressionist pioneers.
