About ALAgrApHY

is a Paris-based Artist (painter, photographer and filmmaker) and Scientist (PhD in Complex Systems and expertise in AI and Data Science) who has been teaching machines to create art since 2011 with Generative art and algorithmic art (mainly fractal art) and since 2016 using deep learning CNNs RNNs GANs... His AI-generated artwork marked a sale at the Grand Palais on Feb, 13th 2018 before the internet witnessed the AI ART buzz lead by Christie's. His series of thousands of unique faces of all diversity, ages and genders, generated by Artificial Intelligence, or AI ART, more precisely using Generative Adversarial Networks are trained on a database of faces that he has captured with his camera for the 1001 faces project. He won several art and science awards such as the ISCB Art Science competition and the Biomed scientific image. The most noteworthy is the digital art award at the Salon d'Automne at the Champs Elysees in Paris at which his "D'ame(s) Souriante(s)", meaning smiling Lady or smiling souls, received the "digital art" award. The Salon d'Automne has exhibited Picasso and Rodin and has been the birthplace of art movements such as cubism and fauvism. At the Grand Palais ALAgrApHY exhibited "Muse(s) Endormie(s)" meaning sleeping muse(s). Another AI ART exhibition followed at the Grand Palais on . Several collaborations (Unesco and Mairie de Paris) exhibitions and art installations took place in 2019 such as Collective Brain X. His solo exhibition ARTificial Intelligence took place over the months of Novermber and December at 40 rue de Rivoli and an AI olfactory Art exhibition at 59 rue de Rivoli. The mayor of Paris exhibited his artwork on the streets in large format. Some of the installations are permanent and can be seen today.

The first children of the cloud made into art

One of the first children of the cloud ai art
The first children of the cloud or the first AI-generated people of all origins, ages and genders was generated in 2016 after months of training on a number of portraits from the 1001 faces in order to collectively create the following gigantic mosaics that were exhibited: ai art series by alagraphy and the boring details of when/how exactly they have been generated, published and exhibited can be discovered here or in this page dedicate to the first AI-Art using GANs sold

Art History with AI-ART (AI-Generated Art), Neural Art or Creative AI

"I woke up one August morning in 2018 with my mailbox swamped with friends' emails about Christie's making worldwide headlines and claiming to auction an AI artwork that suddenly became dubbed as the first to be auctioned. That was 6 months after my sale of an AI-generated Artwork on Feb 13, 2018 at the Grand Palais. Now that I look back at it, I realize that everything happens for a reason and the exposure was not meant for those who might deserve it for several reasons. There are artists and art marketers and they have nothing in common".

Top AI ARTists and other listings

One of our sponsors once asked why is ALAgrApHY not included in a listing of top AI Artists to which ALAgrApHY responded: "Those who maintin the listing have no commercial interest in including me nor any of the Artists and Scientists that inspired my first works. I am not interested in paying to be on a list or being sold in ways that don't align with my mission. Read More..."

The AI Art History before the buzz hit the fan

It makes me cringe and laugh to see people who have recently joined the AI ART space talk about its history with zero fact-checking based on hype and speculations made by journalists. This is disrespectful not only for the community of artists and scientists but for all information integrity on Twitter and all social media.
After many requests, and with one last piece no longer missing, I am writing this article with plenty of confidence, references, and links. I am writing this article also to introduce myself and the domain in which I have invested most of my passion and time. I am also writing this to mass-media-consumers and relayers having little to no time for research and fact-checking.
I am finally writing this to share my humble prospects for Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) that I have been researching and applying to art since 2016 that is way before the buzz hit the fan and the art market started commercializing it. I am happy that some talented artists have used GANs and evolved it since then. Read more.... or check out my AI-Generated AI Artists with random names, biographies, art styles and artwork

> Q. Will AI replace Artists?
AI is just a tool to enhance artists' self-expression. A decade ago, people feared that the camera will replace traditional artists but it only created a new form of art. AI is just a tool, an extension of the artist's paintbrush. AI is far from becoming fully autonomous and independent of its maker. Those who claim otherwise do so only to seek media attention.

Q. Who is the Artist, in this case, man or machine?
When man writes a code to adapt the machine to his own needs, man has succeeded in creating a tool for expressing himself, just like the camera is a tool for capturing pictures, and just like the stone was a tool for etching cave drawings… The creative code or creative AI is only creative in a way that the camera is creative and useful for the camera man.

Response to Christie's self-proclaimed first AI ART auction.
Thanks to all those who were of support

ALAgrApHY's response to Christie's after they made a huge buzz about their false claims about both the first AI art and AI auction, none of which was true! However, jouralists care little about the truth with respect to the buzz! Welcome to the era of fake news!
