Al, Alaa or ALAgrApHY, artist (painter, photographer and director) and scientist (PhD in complex systems, Data Scientist and expert in artificial intelligence) is among the pioneers in AI-generated art. In 2009 the artist has done an artistic residence at the IGC, in which he focused on an artistic visualization of data generated by IGC scientists.
ALAgrApHY explores concepts of machine-generated art. He uses artificial intelligence and machine learning – more specifically deep learning – to teach machines to generate art. His work has been shown successfully in many venues, including the Salon Comparaison at Grand Palais and the Salon d’Automne in Paris, a venue known for witnessing the launch of cubism and fauvism movements. In this last venue, the artistwon the “prix d’art digital”.
His last exhibition at the Gulbenkian Foundation on the Collective Brain Experiment was subject of several press articles during his residency as an artist and scientist at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia. The artist will be showing a new series of his AI-generated artworks at the Grand Palais in February 2020.Website
