Julien Espagnon studied Applied Arts before becoming a web designer, then a frontend developer in a communication agency. During his studies, he discovered generative art and the use of code as a creative medium, in which he quickly found his artistic calling. For an entire year in 2017, he created a daily shape of animated generative art using Processing, which would become the "365 shapes of blue" project, his first to be exhibited in a gallery. Very quickly, on top of his digital creations, he decided to transpose them into drawings using a plotter. The combination of these two media is the result of his research to develop a malleability between the digital and the physical arts which determines his way of thinking about his algorithms and his creations.
