Have you ever wondered what a Renaissance painting would look like? Well, think no more thanks to a full-stack Japanese developer named Sato and his creation called AI Gahuku. He developed an AI art generator that takes a user-submitted image and transforms it into a painting (a “masterpiece”) from the golden age of the arts. While the service does work, its definition of “masterpiece” might be the subject of some debate once you see its offerings.
Part of the art generated by AI is a faithful recreation of the source images; the results look like the photographs, except that they are now done with paint strokes. But other portraits have not done so well. Depending on the photo, the outlet may have distorted features, stray facial hair, and it may require serious dental care. These issues are often fun (and not entirely unexpected) from AI, as machine learning improves as users enter data.
There is, however, a more problematic side to AI Gahuku. In the case of people of color who upload their photos, many have found that the paints they receive have lightened their skin color. This is recognized by the developer. âCurrently, we are confirming that the release of the AI ââartist has been biased,â Sato said in response. âWe hope to use a wide variety of training data and increase the diversity of results in the future. I would love to have your support in the future!
AI Gahuku is an AI art generator that turns user-submitted photos into Renaissance-style paintings.

â¦ And there are complaints that AI lightens the skin of people of color. (A fact the developer acknowledges.)

AI Gahaku painted my portrait 3 times using 3 different styles. I don’t know how I turned into an old European man. The last painting of me looks like one of the popes pic.twitter.com/qD7SqZKTWk
