Thanks to the Roto-Drawing Machine, people can forgo hiring an artist to create a stunning piece of art.

Created by French Canadian designer Fran├žois Xavier Saint Georges, this robust machine automatically paints superb art work by spitting out ink. It's assembled using an automated contraption that is connected to a wheel that spins randomly to create ink prints. A robotic machine created these illustrations and they look worthy enough to be placed in a prestigious art gallery.

The Roto-Drawing Machine is fixed with sponges that are connected to the rotating disc and during the spinning process, the designer refills the machine with more paint to allow the coiling art work to continue doing its job. This multifaceted drawing device intertwines a variety of hues to create a drastic abstract art effect.
