According to statistics, there are, at least, 6 people in the world similar to you. Moreover, it is very likely that these people also lived many decades ago. To make yourself sure, we highly recommend you study the faces portrayed in the paintings of artists who lived in various countries and epochs. There are several ways to find it out.
Of course, the first option that comes to people’s minds is scrolling the web pages endlessly, trying to find a painted person with a similar appearance.
Alternatively, just like on the photos below, one can visit art galleries searching for his or her twin on a photo.
The main disadvantage of both options is the number of paintings in the world. Just imagine how many pieces of art have been created the whole time. So nobody can view the masterpieces online as well as offline. Plus, it will take much time to study the faces portrayed in the paintings. Finally, not every person can afford to visit hundreds of art galleries just to grant this wish. Moreover, the probability to find a person alike is too low.
Happily, there is one more option for you, and we find it flawless! The thing is that cutting-edge technologies are capable of finding your painted twin instead of you. Unfortunately, this feature is introduced only in one app, but it worth to be examined.
Google Arts & Culture

As is clear from the name of this feature – «Is your portrait in a museum?» – the app has a unique built-in system that is powerful enough to find a similar person on the paintings located in galleries of the whole world. The AI will do its best to find the most similar personage to you.
After completing the search, the app will show you three paintings with people that are similar to you. What is more, they will be completed with a degree of resemblance in percent. In many cases, the similarity between the app’s user and a person painted is extremely confusing.
Apart from this, you will be able to study the name of the paintings shown as well as the artists that created them. That’s why this feature is entertaining and, at the same time educational. As a bonus, the app will also show the name of an art gallery or museum where this or that piece of art located. So it will be a nice idea for your next trip to visit a particular exhibition and look at this painting in real life.
There is one more cool thing about this feature. By it, we mean that you will be able to share the result via social media or email. Plus, the image shared will also include the original photo. So it will be much more convenient for your friends and relatives (or even followers) to view the sameness.
At the same time, it must be mentioned that the result partly depends on your facial expression, hairdo, accessories, and so on. Consequently, changing one of these parameters can change the results generated.

When it comes to considering some features for entertainment, we can offer you to turn any photo into painted one with this app. By doing this, you will be able to look at how would any photo look as if it was painted by a master.
What else makes the app phenomenal is its capability to recognize an artwork just after you point your gadget on it. That sounds really amazing.
