AI will not replace artists

Everyone with a day job below the CEO level has considered if their employment would remain in ten or twenty years. Even artists are now frightened about being supplanted by AI. While many people believed that creatives would be immune to AI replacement, recent advancements in AI-generated entertainment and art have raised billions of eyebrows across the globe.

Artists are concerned that the current increase in AI art will mean that they will lose their position in the world. With the pace of growth of AI-generated art and material, video editors, graphic designers, painters, sculptors, and even writers are all on edge.

However, there is an important counterargument that may set your creative mind at rest if you are concerned about your future. This post tackles these issues and attempts to provide a fresh viewpoint.

The issue with AI

Artists have had a difficult time in recent years. Then came the NFT boom, when money-grubbing goblins sold Ugly Duckling for fortunes despite having little enthusiasm and much less competence, and now robots are taking control.

It’s difficult enough to commercialize your artistic abilities. It’s difficult to distinguish out on an internet filled with beautiful works of digital art and brief films of speed painting and the like.

Now that AI can make art, it’s not the artist’s fault if they feel completely replaced and buried under a layer of gravel.

Art as humanity

The definition of art provided by effectively establishes the relevance of the “human” component in art. According to, art is “the expression or application of human creative genius and inventiveness, often in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, generating works appreciated largely for their beauty or emotional force.” Because of the number of words in this definition, it is intrinsically human.

As an example, the focus on “human creative talent and imagination,” with “imagination” as the key word, shows how important each person is to the making of art. Using the above-mentioned Turing test, however, the AAIL researchers found that viewers don’t have to show human emotions in order to think that a piece of art is evocative.

Where AI art doesn’t work

Intent is something that an AI will never have, at least not in the next several decades. AI can provide words, but it cannot convey a narrative. AI can create a painting on par with the greatest painters of all time, but it was described by a human — and possibly photos — in the hope that it would cure all the odd-looking flaws.

One issue is that the process of creation is often more important than the outcome. For example, an artwork may not be all that great, but the story that inspired it may give it a lot of value. Aside from the human-made stimulus, AI-generated art doesn’t have this human element, which makes it seem cold and boring.

Human-created works of art are also today protected under copyright regulation. Because it is unknown whether present copyright regulations will apply to AI-generated art, its financial potential may be limited.

Others say that AI will never be able to make truly amazing art because it will never be able to perfectly copy human experience. Although artificial intelligence (AI) has made significant advances lately, it still has a long way to go before it can replace humans.

AI cannot innovate; it can only iterate

You might argue that people are similar in the sense that we can only make art based on what we have lived and experienced, and you would be correct.

Humans, on the other hand, have a wide and complex view of life that lets us create, while AI can only copy. Only humans are capable of recreating the human experience.


AI, like any other topic, can and should be seen as a tool to aid human attempts in the field of creativity. AI, like a paintbrush, acts as a tool that enables creative expression. Artificial intelligence has been a watershed point in the evolution of creative expression throughout millennia.

With the help of a computer, it may even lead to areas of improved human creativity that haven’t been thought of before.
