Visual artist Jaewook Koh commits his works on finding human artists’ value in the AI era. In a time when AIs are able to reproduce realistic images of the actual landscape from a simple sketch, Koh questions how an artist’s labor can be proven valuable.
Based on this existential question, Custom made painting asks participants to commission art works in desired sizes, materials and genres. The price is listed differently depending on each variable, and it even doubles when the artist’s signature, certificate of authenticity, and other proof documents are requested. These custom-made paintings will prove the value of artists.
