When AI reaches the point of making art, it won't need the "A" in its initials anymore.
Secondly, robots have no creativity and empathy. They will never, never ever have them. If a hacker attack or a solar storm comes, goodbye technologies and robots.
Though they might not be able to create a brand new style of art, they will easily be able to collate hundreds of thousands of human paintings, in order to create something incredibly abstract, mesmerizing, realistic, cartoonish, or minimalistic. What may seem brand new and out of thin air, is the collection of hundreds of similar paintings, put together.
I think globalization and content mills enabled by technology are currently the issue for illustrators in the US.
It's probably going to be one of the very last ones to get automated.
