Artificial intelligence (AI) art has unquestionably taken the internet by storm. It may have sparked the creative juices of some artists, as evidenced by the fact that creative images created with apps like Midjourney now appear on the internet every other day.
Recently, digital artist Gokul Pillai shared some AI-generated pictures of the world’s most well-off individuals turned poor on his Instagram. The collection of photographs includes everyone, from Elon Musk to Jeff Bezos. Some of the world’s most prominent billionaires have been depicted as “Slumdog Billionaires” in images making waves on social media. These lifelike portraits have gone viral and demonstrate how artists produce beautiful works using AI tools.
Gokul Pillai used Mid Journey to reimagine the world’s wealthiest people as poor. Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Mukesh Ambani, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk are featured in the collection of images. The outcome caused a stir online, and the photos quickly became widely shared online. Over 10,000 people have liked the post thus far.
They are posed in a slum-like setting and dressed in clothes typically worn by poor people. The photographs appear to have been taken by the billionaires because they are so realistic.
A few days back on social media, AI-generated images of Pope Francis wearing a chic puffer jacket and an alleged photo of Donald Trump’s “arrest” sparked controversy, with many applauding the pictures’ realistic appearance. Using Midjourney, these digital creations were made.
In addition, users can use the platform to create convincing fake pictures of world leaders, such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden. However, the platform does not permit the creation of images of China’s Xi Jinping.
