This has been going on for a while

Even while I was in Art School we were aware of the "painting factories" in Asia - mostly in China - where assembly line painting has been pumping millions of paintings on canvas to the rest of the world for decades.

It was only a matter of time before the power of the new technologies introduced a new angle and offer a "painting" on the cheap.
Instapainting, a YC-backed company launching this morning, turns any photo into a hand-painted piece on canvas for under $100 bucks.

If you’ve ever tried to have something like this done before, you probably know: this exists. A few companies have been doing the whole photo-into-art thing for years. Where Instapainting thinks they have them beat, however, is in pricing and speed.
