Many people considered it a “formless blur of colors,” an image that was abstract but slightly resembling a human face. The image isn’t even properly positioned on the canvas, rather it is skewed towards the northwest. In October 2018, this “art piece”: Portrait of Edmond de Belamy, an algorithm-generated print, was sold for $432,500, thus beginning the AI-Art goldRush. Humans have always created and enjoyed all forms of art, for viewing purposes, for aesthetic purposes, and even for therapeutic purposes. Since the discoveries of an artistic shell carved by homoerectus, the art business has grown in leaps and bounds and become a highly profitable industry. Leonardo Davinci’s, Salvator Mundi went for $450.3 million, becoming the most expensive art piece to date. Understanding and thriving in this industry is not as easy as it may appear, it requires a lot of knowledge, time, and exposure. 25-year-old Arushi Kapoor is the CEO and co-founder of ARTSop art consulting, is an entrepreneur who boasts all of these traits. She is also the founder of Arushi, a cultural center and art warehouse based in Echo Park, Los Angeles. In this article, Kapoor shares her knowledge of the art industry and the influence that tech and AI have on it. Technology has impacted the way art is created and enjoyed for the better part of the last 100 years, the invention of portable paint tubes enabled artists to paint outdoors and sparked a contingent of stunning landscape and horizon paintings. Today cameras and software like Photoshop have redefined the way art is created and enjoyed. Kapoor, who is herself a tech-enthusiast agrees that these advancements have been great, but insists that they have not changed the antiquated meaning of art.“I will always be grateful for technology and technological advancements,” says Kapoor. “I wouldn’t have a business or be able to do what I have done in the industry since the age of 19, had it not been for technologies of various kinds.”She continues,“However, in my experience, I feel that there is still and will always be that reverence in the hearts of art lovers towards handmade art and crafts. Technological creations have great utility and aesthetic value, but paintings and craft tend to have what I refer to as ‘artistic glory. Human creativity is what art is all about. Technology is a help to it, not a full replacement for it.”Kapoor’s foray into the industry dates back to when she wrote her first book, “Talking Art” at age 19. With that book, she put the world on notice that art was not going to be just a fleeting interest for her. Kapoor grew up in India, Europe, and the US, and this multicultural exposure has certainly influenced her knowledge and understanding of art. Kapoor is the director of Arushi, a US-based venture that made history as the first to present a sold-out all-Indian art show; “Art of India, Reclaiming The Present.
