Art Generation

Calum McDowell


Supervised by Paul L Rosin; Moderated by Crispin Cooper

This project will attempt to create artwork in the style of some famous artists, so called generative art or computer art. There are many different methods possible as well as different artists to consider.

The project could take as its basis, methods such as: Generation of Miro's Surrealism - Xiong & Zhang, 2016 Harold Cohen and AARON: Collaborations in the Last Six Years (2010–2016) of a Creative Life - Louise Sundararajan, 2021 Towards Layer-wise Image Vectorization - Ma, Zhou, Xu et al., 2022

See also the topic of Artificial Intelligence Art (e.g. AiArt: Towards Artificial Intelligence Art - Chen, Shidujaman, Tang, 2020)

And the topic of bias is also interesting (e.g. Biases in Generative Art - A Causal Look from the Lens of Art History - Srinivasan & Uchino, 2021)

Note that this is not the same topic as image stylisation, which aims to take an existing image and modify its appearance.
