Artists are increasingly using AI to create and sell art. One such work, “Portrait of Edmond de Belamy,” sold for $432,500 in October 2018. In a recent interview with the BBC, Reben said that the creativity of AI is endless and “the creative potential of AI is the stuff of artist dreams.” While the concept of AI art is relatively new, many of its applications are already being used in the creative process.
In one case, a French collective created a computer program that could generate paintings that had never been exhibited. The winning bidder in this instance was anonymous, so the artist’s identity was not revealed. Another example is the creation of a painting by the Google AI. An algorithm can study thousands of images and try to create a new image based on what it has already learned. Once it’s developed a set of aesthetics, the computer program then tries to generate a new image that reflects the aesthetics of its predecessors.
The “Memories of Passersby” by Refik Anadol was sold for $50,000 at Sotheby’s in October. These artists used open source algorithms to create the artwork. The art created by AARON is colorful, expressive, and evocative. The results of the auction were published in iScience, and have since been shown at many art shows.
AI can create artworks that resemble the works of famous artists. At B-VISIONARY we are able to achieve this feat by applying our own artistic interpretations. For example our Futurist Prophecies “Universal Dynamism” collection is created by our Artificial Intelligence algorithms based on over 5000 designs from the magnificient production of futurist paintings. With this collection we are reinventing the revolutionary aesthetics of Futurism. The avant-garde movement founded in Milan in 1909 by the Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and now considered extinct.
Some of the most innovative and impressive AI creations are created by emerging digital artists. But what makes them unique are the creative skills and unique features they incorporate into their work.
The first piece of art that is produced with the use of artificial intelligence algorhitms is “Memories of Passersby” by the French collective Obvious. The algorithm feeds hundreds of images into a computer. The images are derived from an open source of algorithms. These algorithms then generate images that look similar to the human faces. They try to create new ones with the same aesthetics.
