The Pikazo artwork app by John Nordberg is a imaging platform that is able to manipulate photographs into the styles of celebrated artists such as Salvador Dali. The app functions off of a neural network that renders the image in the style of the selected artist, giving each image a different aesthetic and overall design. The app functions off of an image recognition system that is able to scan the contents of the illustration prior to applying the stylized filter, to render a much more professional and believable finished product.

The platform is engineered to study illustrations and be able to read the contents in them for better filtering. This allows the app to have a better understanding of the image and where it is best suited to apply the stylized brushstrokes or artistry of different creatives. The overall work is rendered much more believable as a finished product.
