List of Artists Supported by DALL.E 2

DALL.E 2, the text-to-image generative AI has trained on millions of labeled images to produce the user-required artwork. In order to get the most out of DALL.E 2, you must know how to query it.

Querying of DALL.E 2 or other generative AI models is known as prompting, which is a series of words written in human language.

To write a good prompt, you need to insert multiple modifiers. But, alternatively, you can bring out more from DALL.E 2 just by mentioning the artist’s names. To do so, you need to know the artist’s names that DALL.E 2 supports.

Unlike Stable Diffusion, DALL.E 2 has not revealed its complete training dataset. Hence, it is hard to know the artist’s style that DALL.E 2 is aware of. However, there are many successful AI artists out there on Twitter, Instagram, Lexica, and OpenArt are experimenting with artists’ names and styles on DALL.E 2.

In this article, I have curated the list of tested artists along with the style/ field they are famous for. However, this is not the official list released by DALL.E 2.

Why Is It Important to Know Artist Names?

To write the best prompts, it is important to know the artist’s names and/ or art styles over other art jargon. Just by mentioning the artists’ names, you can bring their color palettes, styles, art medium, patterns, etc.

An example prompt that leverages the artist name: GTA vice city in the style of Vincent van Gogh

artist name in prompt

The technique of inserting the artist’s names and/ or art styles facilitates the process of prompting.

It is not necessary to know all art jargon to write good prompts. All you need to know is how to use the artist’s name and steal prompt ideas from other artists.

You can ease the creation of prompts by using the free prompt generators that are available for DALL.E 2.
