RVig was born in 1976 in Lyon, France and currently resides in Geneva, Switzerland.
He has been a digital artist since 1999. He studied computer science and engineering at INSA Lyon (National Institute of Applied Science) and McGill University (Montréal, Canada). However he had long had a passion for art and images and he succeeded at weaving this into his mastery of coding.
Generative art refers to art made through the use of creative coding. It’s a long and detailed process, balancing and combining algorithms, raw source data, visual harmonisation skills, fine tuning, planning and vision.
Practitioners have access to a wide range of knowledge and techniques, and RVig likes to explore untried combinations of techniques and new ways of applying current knowledge. This practice leads to interesting discoveries and new visual experiences.
He has built over time his own collection of custom scripts, tools and code, which is constantly evolving with the emergence of new ideas and technologies.
His work has appeared at a diverse range of exhibitions in galleries and events since 2011, including FTWeekend Festival in London, InkGallery in Geneva, Lausanne Art Fair, Paris Metaverse Summit and Predict Conference in Dublin.
In 2021 he entered the world of NFTs, with the release of the project “Flowers” on Artblocks.io, the main NFT platform dedicated to generative art.
Some of my work are available as NFT on Tezos and ETH blockchains. Tezos is a PoS blockchain and is very energy efficient. ETH is transitionning from PoW to PoS, and I will personnaly surcompensate my estimated carbon footprint till the switch is effective.
