Portrait of a man (75 years old) in a horizontally blue-white thinly-striped french breton jumper wearing square square square cornered rectangular black rim designer glasses and greying short straight hair parting hairstyle, oil on canvas (1991)
Portrait of a man is a stunning example of Mario Klingemann using AI to create a self-portrait that strikingly bears a true resemblance. Klingemann has used the term “Neurographer” to describe his artistic practice of navigating the latent space to find and capture the best images. This piece is a perfect showcasing of Klingemann exploring the latent space to discover and “photograph” himself.
This is one of the only times Klingemann publicly displays the prompt used in the text-to-image system, providing unique insight into the creative process.
A self-portrait showing Mario Klingemann created from a text prompt with Stable Diffusion and Dall-e 2. The title of the work is the prompt used to create it.
