For everyone at home getting bored, it’s time to try the Google Arts & Culture app

Google Arts & Culture recently added a filter to its Art Transfer app that will allow you to turn your photos into artworks. Textures, color, and brush strokes will surely keep you entertained for a while as you edit photos.

Furthermore, the application allows you to visit virtual and augmented reality exhibitions such as that of the painter Vermeer, the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon, and learn more about the fascinating Mayan world without leaving your home. Now with Art Transfer, the app scores more points.

The update was made possible by artificial intelligence technology that allows you to adapt landscapes or silhouettes to your filters. Thus, you can turn your selfie in the park into a Post-Impressionist landscape. Or, become the perfect model for Andy Warhol, Leonardo da Vinci or Edvard Munch.

Best of all, to achieve pictorial filters Google collaborated with cultural institutions such as the National Gallery and the Japanese art museum MOA. In addition, it works with a model created by Google AI that does an algorithmic recreation of your photo inspired by the specific art style you chose.

As if that weren’t enough, the way to implement the filter is very simple. First, you have to open the camera menu of the Google Arts app and select Art Transfer. A photo is then selected or taken and chosen from the variety of masterpieces or transferred a style to the image.

Additionally, a great plus is that while you wait for the result, the application makes it easier for anyone who wants fun facts about the masterpiece or painter of your choice. Finally, the whole process takes place in your app, without the need for useless clouds.
