I suggest we do NOT add living artists that have specifically stated they do not wish their name & art to be included in AI Art Generation projects.

A best practice from Onkwehonwehneha A.I. to respectfully contact living artists and ask for their fully informed prior consent when we hope to include their names and art titles in our AI Text Prompts. If that artist does not give consent, you need to respect that and not include their name and art in your projects. Onkwehonwehneha (rough translation is ‘Native Way of Doing things…’). Onkwehonwehneha AI refers to practice of Ancient Intelligence collaboration with Artificial Intelligence. Every being carries Ancient Intelligence in their dna, their language, their culture that helps them to practice healthy ways of being.

Thousands and thousands of artist names are available to use in text prompts, we don’t need to disrespect living and recently passed artists and their close families & friends.

Thousands of years’ worth of historical and modern artist names are available that we can reference in our text prompts without creating chaos for living & recently passed away artists & their families.

Here is a list of some artist names that might be helpful when creating your own text prompts. ChatGPT is also great for writing AI Text Prompts with the Unbundling Technique (describe specific art pieces and artists, while not including the artist and art piece of inspiration by name).
