The Maslov paintings explore human needs and desires. They're inspired by the famous food still lifes of Old Master Adriaen Coorte and the surprising pleasure of enjoying an extraordinary diner.
The artworks (real size 120 x 120 cm) are extremely high resolution picture prints of 256 million pixels each, created with custom software specially developed by artist Jeroen van der Most. The artworks also exist virtually in the form of a movie.

Future van Gogh
The Future Van Gogh is a data based, statistical prediction of Van Gogh's next painting. In the form of a real painting. The artwork was created in 2014 and covered by international art media like The Art Newspaper and artnet.com. A series of AI based Van Gogh paintings by Van der Most were exhibited at the Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong.
Based on his experience with The Future Van Gogh, Van der Most had a special advisor role in the Next Rembrandt project in 2016. In the project a data based Rembrandt was created for an ad campaign for ING. The Next Rembrandt project was covered by international media like The Guardian and Dutch media like Parool and NOS journaal. The campaign received the world's biggest advertising prizes for it's innovative aspect.
In the project Future Faces artist Jeroen van der Most used artificial intelligence to show the elderly, aged faces of assassinated Dutch politician Pim Fortuin and writer Theo van Gogh.
The project is an experiment with the use of AI to renew the art of portraiture, but also a study of the effectiveness of art to reinvigorate thoughts about the two subjects.
The age of ultimation
The age of ultimation was an experimental research project by artist Jeroen van der Most about the uprising influence of artificial intelligence on art.
The project consisted of several conceptual artworks, a manifesto, movie and a series of blog posts and interviews published by Dutch media like BNR, Sublime FM, and Bright.
Next to that, presentations and lectures about the developed ideas were given by Jeroen van der Most at institutions like the University of Utrecht.
Jeroen van der Most created Hyperdream artworks for companies like NVM, Funda (Holland's biggest housing website), and the Ramada hotel chain.
Hyperdreams were experiments with digital animation and video art, mostly generated algorithmically or with the use of artificially intelligent systems.
The works are displayed on screens and show an endless stream of continuously changing imagery, picking content from old Master art but also from the specific companies' own image archives. On occasion Hyperdreams were created for individual art lovers.
