Art meets Design in 3D

The Canada-based digital artist Jon Rafman wanted to explore ” the line between art and design, in which a great work of art can be reduced to a shrinkwrap or add-on surface and functional objects and spaces elevated to the purposelessness of artwork”.

His new project, called “Brand New Paint Job”, is a series of 3D models, in which he wraps entire rooms in modernist paintings. The photos of the project can be seen at the Armory Show, in New York, from March 6 to March 9.
