This AI artist turns your selfie into a Renaissance masterpiece for free

Admit it: We’re all suckers for a good photo filter. For our next fan favorite, we present to you AI Gahaku.

Gahaku means master painter in Japanese, and that’s exactly what this Artificial Intelligence (AI) artist is. AI Gahaku takes your selfies and transforms it into an array of (mostly) Renaissance-era paintings in a matter of seconds. 

It was developed by Japanese full-stack developer named Sato, and they were kind enough to share AI Gahaku for free. (But if you have funds to spare, you can buy him a coffee as thanks on the page.)

To test AI Gahaku’s skills, we checked out how its rendition of our favorite memes would turn out. Here are the results:

Meme Cardi B in OR style

The Bratz “girl i-” meme in EX3 style

Kombucha girl in RE0 style

Miley Cyrus meme in IM1 style

It’s a fun website to play with while we bide our time indoors. Though if you do end up trying it, you might notice that its output leans toward Caucasian features. The developer is aware of this and is currently working on diversifying AI Gahaku’s creations, so hooray for that.

The website can be found here. Go forth and transform into the Renaissance masterpiece that you are.
