ALAgrApHY Art and Science

           

Vitae

Al or ALAgrApHY is a Paris-based heptaglot cosmopilitan speaker, artist (painter, photographer and filmmaker) and scientist (PhD in complex systems, Data Scientist and expert in artificial intelligence and its applications to natural language processing with a Postdoc at the University of Pierre et Marie Curie). ALAgrApHY builds drawing machines and teaches them using algorithms how to make art and is considered a pioneer in AI Art. More specifically he generates meta-mosaics made up of thousands of components, ususally unique faces of non-existing people of all origins, ages and genders to paint humanity with all colors of diversity. His artwork Dormant Muses (/Muses Endormie/) based on the Children of the Cloud (2016) that were generated with AI trained on his project of 1001 faces was the first AI-generated artwork using Generative Adversarial Networks to be sold at the Grand Palais on Feb 13, 2018 before art marketers and auction houses commercialized AI-ART and turned it into a speculative buzz. In the same year, ALAgrApHY won the digital art award at the Salon d'Automne known for starting cubism and fauvism, and in the following year, he exhibited his interactive Collective Brain X at the Gulbenkian Museum. Even since, many exhibitions in galleries, museums and art fairs followed. A timeline exploring the overlap between art and science in a selection of venues can be enjoyed under the exhibition section.
