Prisma transforms your photos and videos into works of art using the styles of famous artists: Van Gogh, Picasso, Levitan, as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art pieces.

The app takes an image, breaks it down and turns it into something new. The end result looks like something created by an artist with a paintbrush on canvas instead of a photo. Prisma has become a go to app for quick edits on art, and even making cover art for albums, mixtapes, etc. Prisma works best with neutral pictures. Neutral picture have no previous edits or filters added.

Let’s be clear, this app is no substitute for the high-level work of professional fine artists and illustrators who operate not by algorithm by inspiration and human skill. However, the results of some of the images taken into the Prisma app are nonetheless fascinating simulacrums of real art. So with all that, you have enough awesomeness to occupy photo sharing fans for the foreseeable future. Prisma plans to roll out the app for video in the future. Those future plans were confirmed by The Next Web a few days ago. In the meantime, the photo version of the app is currently iOS only, but it is coming to Android later this month.

I give the app Prisma 5/5 stars. The app has even been prefered over instagram’s filters, and rivals the ever popular dog filter from snapchat. This app isn’t just for artist, but for anyone wanting to become a quick photographer for the day.
