AI Art Shop (aiartshop.com) is a collective of AI experts and artists from London, who share a vision in which Artificial Intelligence is the next step in the evolution of art that can make it more accessible and affordable for everyone.
AI Art is a current trend in the world of art that is gaining popularity day-by-day. The concept is based around the idea that appropriately trained, machine learning algorithms are capable of producing original images, using large computational resources on a vast amount of image data. These machine learning algorithms are based on the technology called General Adversarial Networks or GANs for short.
This seemingly simple process is actually more complicated than one might think since it highly depends on the size and what’s most important — quality of the dataset as well as time spent on training the algorithm. All of these variables, in turn, depend on the power of the graphics cards used (we use a grid of industrial grade GPUs), e.g. — the more computational power, the larger the dataset and the less the time it takes for every model to train. In our context, “training the model”, in simple terms, means that the algorithm continuously generates images through the generator component and the other component of the model called the discriminator “decides” whether the output of the generator is close to the original dataset or not.
After countless hours of training, the model, based on what it learnt during the training process, is then able to generate something completely new, something that has never been drawn before — original AI art.
Fascinating, isn’t it?
It is beautiful how technology has advanced to the point where it is able to engage in art creation. Only 15 years ago, this was barely considered a possibility and today AI Art Shop, a leader in the AI Art industry, displays hundreds of unique AI works of art with a collection of over 50 AI portraits with human faces so realistic that it is almost impossible to tell the difference between a human-made portrait and an AI portrait.
We share a vision in which exceptional quality art is affordable and accessible for everyone, and we know we can achieve this with AI paintings.
So, are we entering a new era where robots are going to completely replace human artists? The answer is ‘no’, at least in the near future. Trained AI algorithms, are indeed able to generate original images, however a lot of the output, even with a lot of training, is either noise or art that believe me you would not like to see. So, this is where human involvement comes in. Thanks to our amazing team of art experts we are able to filter out the noise and select only the best images. The next step once the paintings have been selected and named, is to use a different group of AI algorithms to increase the resolution of every selected image to allow for the best quality of paintings.
As you can see there is definitely a degree of human involvement, but the creative process is done completely by Artificial Intelligence. We offer both digital AI art and custom made one-off AI canvas prints — both products come with a certificate of authenticity registered in the blockchain. Our AI paintings are brought to life using a state-of-the-art Giclee Print technology with an Ink Jet machine, guaranteeing 99% colour accuracy as well as outstanding colour depth and longevity. One interesting trait of AI paintings is that on some of them we are able to observe brush strokes and certain 3D elements that the AI overlaid on certain parts of the painting. Coupled with our vector correction and resolution adjustment AI technologies, this allows us to create AI paintings with an oil-painting-like effect. For some of our paintings it is hard to even tell whether the painting is a canvas print or an oil painting when looking from a distance — all because of the ultrahigh resolution ranging from 500 to 1000 dpi and 3D brush stroke effects.
We have over 12 different AI algorithms that create paintings in different artistic styles. If you are interested in learning more about AI Art or buying an AI painting, visit our website at www.aiartshop.com. We currently have a sale with 60% off all digital AI art.
