Painting Robots


CloudPainter is an artificially creative painting robot. It is the sixth robot that I have made in the past twelve years. My first machine drew simple lines with a paint brush, connect-the-dots. The most recent robot uses a custom 3D printed paint head, two robotics arms, deep learning, artificial intelligence, and computational creativity to compose its own original artwork, much in the way human artists create.  This site describes my exploration of creativity, my progress on the robots, as well as how other artists are making robotic art. 


Our current progress as we try to pull software and hardware together in an attempt to make true artificially creative art.

Painting Robot that took its own pictures, created its own original composition, and painted each portrait one stroke at a time.

Crowdsourced painting machine that allowed thousands of people from around the world to all paint at once on same canvas.
