As a traditional artist, I'd say that AI-generated art is like microwaved chicken nuggets, it's premade, artificial, puts minimum effort to make, and is bad for you. The main problem with the use of AI-generated art is that it relies on pre-existing art to function as well some of the stuff generated being based off of a specific artist's style, this serves as direct competition with said specific artist. Imagine spending years perfecting your craft only for some bozo using a machine to copy your style and art, it comes off as art theft, if I'm being honest. And if your some snob that wants to argue on the philosophy on what is considered art, then I say that AI art is not art as a machine only has a rudimentary understanding of what is considered art and doesn't have a actually deep understanding of art, since some of these images have signatures on them despite not being created by a person. Because that's what the machines learned when observing pieces made by humans and so it begins to copy without understanding why it is there.
