AI Art: Digital Brushstrokes

I have always adored any art that could be considered brushstroke art- that is, the brushstroke is the art. See: James Nares, Yago Hortal. One could argue that the abstract expressionists were the originators of this style, but the artist that truly paved the way for this aesthetic was Roy Lichtenstein. His brushstroke was more of a statement on the abstract art that preceded it. But it’s also beautiful enough and decisive enough to cement the pure aesthetic pleasure of isolating a brushstroke. It is also a welcome departure from the egoic nature of the abstract expressionists – “Look at me, I’m painting. I’m an action painter,” and then they all go get drunk at the Cedar Tavern. Lichtenstein’s take is more thoughtful and distilled. Read more

AI Art: When one thing becomes another

I started out with this creative commons image I found. I’m not sure exactly where it was found and what it was used for. The description says, “Dutch Olympic Committee (NOC), 1912-1993, Detail from inventory number 497, Olympic Games 1952 in Oslo,” so I suppose it was part of the Dutch uniform from the 1952 olympic games in Oslo? Whatever it was used for, I think it’s a compelling image – I love the gold thread contrasting with the dark orange. I decided to put it through the wombo app to see what else I could spawn from it.

AI Art: In the Style of Georgia O’Keeffe

One of the fun things about making is AI art, is seeing whether an algorithm recognizes an artist. Dall-E 2 (which I am eagerly waiting for an invite) seems to recognizes a great variety of artists. For now I am using the wombo app, and from what I can gather, it only recognizes the very famous and popular ones. So we start with a very popular artist, Georgia O’Keeffe. She has a distinct style and a frequently used subject matter (flowers!), so she is a good starting point to see what the app can do. Some of these pictures were generated from scratch, and some used a seed picture. Read more

Using AI Art Apps to make Digital Art

Shiny toys made with the Wombo Dream art app
Shiny Toys! made with Wombo Dream.

I have found some shiny new toys in the form of AI art apps! My daughter mentioned something about an app that makes images look like “The Scream,” by Edvard Munch, and I was curious. I started googling and the first thing that came up was something called “Wombo Dream”. It is so simple and easy to use, but also quite powerful in its ability to generate interesting art images. Here is how it works. Go to app.wombo.art. Add some text. Choose a style. And hit the create button. It could not possibly be easier, and it’s fast!
