One Night Gallery / Love Ana Bănică @ Monteoru House 

Mythical creatures, welcoming wildlife, sneaky cats and free-flying birds – they all live together in Ana Bănică’s imaginary jungle and for our first edition this year they take over the magnificent Monteoru House, in an immersive new media art exhibition.

Ana Bănică is a designer and visual artist based in Bucharest, who describes herself as a “cheerful illustrator playing with gouache colors and pencil sketching”.

At One Night Gallery those analog means of expressions will come alive and turn into light shows powered by Aural Eye, augmented and virtual artworks, interactive installations reimagining a street from Globalworth District and Uber Green or holograms.

And, for what is most likely a national premiere, an artist’s work will be used to generate Live Neural Art via an AI-driven algorithm driving the artistic style transfer.

Neural Artistic Style Transfer is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) technique which allows us to extract the visual style of an artwork and then to redraw, in that particular style, any other image.
Sounds neat, right?

It’s built using deep learning and neural networks, currently the hottest trend in the field of AI. If this sounds too technical, think of it as software which learns on its own from examples, as humans do. And we are applying it to visual arts!

Our in-house style transfer AI analyzed several illustrations created by Ana, in order to learn perceptual features about the visual style: color palettes, shapes, textures, brushes and more abstract traits.

At the end of this training process, our AI is now primed to create new “artworks”, by transferring the learned styles onto photos and real-time videos. As you’ll witness at the show, what we obtained is pretty cool.

So, at this One Night Gallery edition, you’ll get the chance to teleport yourself via AI into Ana’s illustrations. 😊

Get a feel of it by scanning our poster with dARe by Samsung – Ana’s characters will be transposed into different styles, previously derived via AI from her artworks.

Download the app from Google Play or App Store and take it with you on March 30th to unveil Ana’a artworks.
