About Richard Vigniel and Generative Art.
Richard Vigniel, also known as RVig, is a french born artist and now lives in Geneva, Switzerland. He is a generative artist from 1999, and succeeded in joining his knowledge in software coding and his passion for art and images. Generative Art refers to the use of creative coding in the process of making art. The generative process is a long and thorough work on balanced assembly of code, algorithms, transforms, rules, fine tuning and discovery. Richard Vigniel usually generates images with his own audio-reactive software application, which is constantly improved with new ideas and technologies. He creates astonishing digital images, which are then printed in various artistic supports and sizes. He also models sculptures, printed with latest 3D printing technology in various materials such as resin, steel, bronze or even silver, gold or platinum !
Our future is an exciting one that combines analog and digital, human and machine, rather than elevating one at the expense of the other. If the history of generative art is our generation’s history, let it be told through the narrative of the talented artists who embraced the new ideas and tools of our time.
