And it’s totally addictive.

AI art generators have exploded in the last couple of years. Known for their uncanny, and sometimes terrifying results, they’re increasingly drawing the attention of artists and non-artists alike for inspiration and to create explorative work.
Now the team behind one such platform – Artbreeder – has a new experiment: Artbreeder-Collages. And while the results are often bizarre, it’s totally addictive.
The original Artbreeder tool allows you to “edit the genes” of either your own images or those already uploaded to the site, or to “cross-breed” images together. The new Artbreeder-Collages, on the other hand, is a generative tool.
Currently in beta, it allows you to create images from scratch using, yes, a collage approach – with a little help from text prompts. Read on to learn more, or if you prefer to continue working in the traditional way, see our guide to the best graphic design software.
