Berlin based artist Enda O’Donoghue paints glitchy scenes sourced from images randomly found online. From an interview with triangulationblog.com:
Like all with all my recent work the source was someone else’s photograph, found online while searching and surfing. I collect photos on an ongoing basis and categorize and catalogue them. When I find one that I wish to work with I attempt to make contact with the original photographer and request their permission to use their photo for my work. This is often met with complete surprise because I tend not to be asking for their “best” photos, in fact often they think I am asking for their worst. When each painting is completed I make a point of sending a photo of the painting back to the original photographer, and in some cases this brings the image back to its source in a way.
