Art Selfie is back, this time with generative AI

A video showing Art Selfie 2 in action

Remember Art Selfie? This Google Arts & Culture feature, launched in 2018, helped the world find their doppelgangers across art history. Now, using the power of generative AI, Art Selfie 2 brings you face to face with culture again, revisiting the world’s art, history and culture with you at the center.

Born out of a prototype from our Artists in Residence program, this feature invites you to snap a selfie by yourself or with friends and choose a style, then see how generative AI creates a stylized image around your face, seamlessly blending your selfie into the chosen scenario. See how you’d look as an explorer scaling Everest, painted as a muse in Monet's garden, or sporting armor as a courageous medieval knight. With over 25 diverse styles and many more to be added in the future, Art Selfie 2 is your passport for a journey of creative exploration & learning.
