What makes a great artist? The greatest artists have always been defined by their unique style. Leonardo da Vinci evoked curiosity with the hidden messages in his works such as The Last Supper. Vincent van Gogh introduced a sense of movement and flow in his famous The Starry Night. The Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai deployed woodblock prints to give us one of the most memorable Japanese art works in The Great Wave off Kanagawa. And Yayoi Kusama used installation art to acquaint us with psychedelic colors, repetition, and pattern in All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins.
“Art is an utterly important tool that allows human beings to express emotions and ideas created in our imagination. It plays a fundamental role in a social context that can bring insight and understanding and also be entertaining” (Roza 2019). For thousands of years, paintings have been popular, and recreating them is time-consuming and requires much training. This process, however, has been expedited with the rise of new tools and technology (Moura 2007), such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), which has been applied and integrated into our everyday life (Machado et al. 2007, 818; cf. Taigman 2014, 1).
