Bas Uterwijk, also known as Ganbrood, is a Dutch artist specializing in a myriad of mediums including special effects, 3D animation, videogames and photography. Combining his skills with generative adversarial networks (GANs) and artificial intelligence, he creates unique portraits of individuals who existed before photography or are entirely fictional. Beginning in 2021, Ganbrood began minting works on Hic et Nunc, exploring abstract "pseudo-figurative" pieces that challenge GANs' creativity and disrupt human visual recognition. Throughout his artistic journey, Ganbrood has found solace in storytelling and experimentation. From his early ventures in 3D tools and animation to his embrace of photography, he discovered that AI releases the burden of perfectionism, allowing him to find joy in the creative process.
