AI Generated Art: Computer Paints Various Still Life


WHITE JUG WITH ONIONS

I’ve been messing around with artificial intelligence art generators. AI generators don’t do well with faces. They can do very well with landscapes. But what about still life? Can I transfer the style of a famous artist onto a contemporary photograph?

ANTOINE VOLLON

This mount of butter by Antoine Vollon took ten years to complete. I wonder if he was working on it from 9-5 every weekday for ten years. More likely he occasionally thought to himself, “I feel like working on my butter mound today.”

Both scenarios are equally interesting to me.
