The Google-based project from Portuguese artist barato features rectangles of color

Portugal-based art director and environmental artist barato‘s Googling project features minimalist digital art influenced by the works of Rothko and Mondrian. Google Image Search was used to create the pieces, with the color palette influenced by searching for words such as ‘snow,’ ‘fire,’ ‘fog’ and ‘forest.’

The Google algorithm generates rectangles with the dominant color of each image. These were turned into street art, transforming unused ad platforms into minimalist art displays and streets into art galleries, with the support of various municipalities and agencies. barato is posting images from the project on Instagram.
