This app finds your fine art doppelgänger. The Google Arts & Culture app. It matches your selfie to similar-looking famous artwork.
Here’s how to find out your match.
Once you’re in the app, scroll down to “Is your portrait in a museum?” Tap “get started” and prepare to take your best selfie. The app scans your face while searching thousands of portraits. Each portrait includes a percentage of how much you resemble it.
Changing your facial expression will deliver different results.
“Oh, here it is! Here it is! I found it! 46% match: Portrait of a Seated Man.”
“I’ve had ones that have just looked, very, almost offensive? Don’t look like me at all. Or sometimes very close to my appearance but not in the most flattering way.”
“Do I look like her?”
“I feel very fancy looking at these. All of them have a Victorian collar, their hair is curled, they have a lot of jewellery. And the painting styles are really different too. I can tell that they’re from different eras.
“I think the beard might be a little misleading because all the results have beards so far. So I think it’s pretty much focusing on that aspect as opposed to other things.
“I would say it picked up well on the nose.”
The app is pretty popular among celebrities too. You can also hold the app up to pictures. We tried some other famous people’s “selfies.” Will your selfie be in a museum one day?
