Turn Your Selfie Into a Van Gogh Painting

Check out the wonders of Art Filter by Google.

(SPOT.ph) Technology has changed the way we consume art—museums and galleries are going online in their own ways, aside from the fact that there's Google Arts and Culture. The Silicon Valley company's online platform puts heritage sites and art galleries in the World Wide Web. You can also transform your own photos in the style of some of the world's most well-known artists, or play around with art-inspired games. Their latest? Art Filter, which rolled out today, October 8.

This feature lets you take a selfie, then choose to become Vincent Van Gogh's "Self-Portrait" (1989), Frida Kahlo's "Self-Portrait with Monkey" (1938), or Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" (1665). You can also have a Japanese helmet on your head called the kawari kabuto, which is from The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection; or an Egyptian collar necklace from Royal Ontario Museum's shelves. These fun 3D augmented-reality filters also lead you to more information about the aforementioned paintings and objects.

Google Arts and Culture app is available on Google Play and App Store.
