Ziye Liu is a 3D and visual FX artist.
Liu’s short clip Themes & Variations picks up a meta-art approach. Inspired by classic works of Yayoi Kusama and Ai Weiwei Liu uses CGI to transform the famous installation artists’ existing works into something new.
Watch his video below and go on a visual journey that takes you to dream-like places while demonstrating the power of modern digital techniques.
Four classic artworks were used as inspiration for the making of this clip. However, the genius part here is that everything in Liu’s film is created using CGI – without any use of video footage or photography (!)
The original installations have been exhibited at numerous art spaces, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the famed Brazilian art garden of Inhotim.
