Abstract

This paper introduces a new evolutionary model of the art and design process. The whole process of interactive image creating was decomposed into three steps: evolving the Bezier curve, evolving the geometric transformations of the curve, and evolving the style of painting it. A model was implemented, and a series of promising experiments was performed.

Keywords

  • Evolutionary art
