Emmanuelle Rensonnet
Brussels, Belgium

I am the co-founder of Akaia Studio, an agency specialized in representing digital and AI artists. Our mission is to showcase and support the extraordinary work of these artists. By forming partnerships with digital creatives, we aim to create a synergy that amplifies both artistic talent and technological potential. Our office is located near Brussels, Belgium, at the heart of Europe, but we work with artists worldwide.
How did you come up with the idea to open a studio dedicated to artificial intelligence?
The idea to establish a studio devoted to digital art stems from a passion for creativity and a desire to bridge the gap between art and technology. Every day, we found ourselves captivated by the AI masterpieces we encountered on Akaia Studio; The temple of digital creatives.
Instagram. However, despite living in a major European art hub, we noticed these artists lack representation. Thus, Akaia was born. Since then, we have committed to fostering a community where art and technology intersect and where artists receive the recognition they deserve.
Do you think artificial
intelligence can contribute
expressively to art?
We are convinced that artificial intelligence will have a profound and transformative impact on the art world. Al has immense potential to revolutionize the artistic process by introducing new methods and techniques that can push the boundaries of human creativity. It essentially acts as a new medium, allowing artists to experiment in ways that were previously inconceivable, and to explore uncharted territories of artistic expression.
At the same time, Al can also democratize the art world, as it provides a platform for artists who may not have access to traditional art resources or who may be constrained by physical or geographical limitations. With Al, all you need is a computer and an Internet connection to create and share your art, to reach out to audiences, and to participate in the global artistic community.
How do you see the market’s reaction? Do you think the audience is ready to consider artwork in this language ?
We’ve observed a significant surge in interest and curiosity, particularly among younger demographics, who are often at the forefront of new trends and technological advancements. Many within this group are thrilled about the potential that AI art holds and are prepared to welcome this new form of expression with open arms. They see it as a unique blend of technology and creativity, offering a fresh perspective on what art can be.
However, the introduction of a new medium always comes with its share of skepticism and resistance, largely stemming from unfamiliarity. But we remain confident, as with exposure to AI-generated art and educational initiatives about the technology behind it, we believe the audience will come to appreciate the value of this new form of art. They will see how it pushes the boundaries of creativity and opens up a world of possibilities that traditional methods cannot. The incorporation of AI in art is a testament to the evolution of artistic expression, and we’re excited to see where this journey takes us.
Do you have any future plans or other artists you want to tell us about?
We aspire to organize art exhibitions that would provide our artists with increased exposure and opportunities to share their craft with a wider audience. It’s a pivotal part of our vision to create spaces where artists and art enthusiasts can connect on a deeper level. Spaces where ideas can be exchanged, discussions can be ignited, and the art community can be further enriched. We believe in the transformative power of art, and through these exhibitions, we hope to foster a greater appreciation and understanding of this medium within our society. In reference to the other talented artists, we are delighted to provide you with further information and details about them. For a comprehensive and in-depth look at these artists we invite you to explore our website, where you’ll find their stories waiting to be discovered.
