Julien Gachadoat (a.k.a v3ga) has been exploring generative drawing for many years, creating unique art with algorithms. He works with the emergence of abstract form, combining monochrome, geometric shapes, playing with repetition, and using random operations to generate an element of surprise.
Developing his own tools of creation based on simple graphic rules, Julien Gachadoat uses the computer – “this unique performer” (Vera Molnár) – to explore the formal possibilities that ensue. It is through the process of printing these unique pieces, using plotters, that he creates a link between text and code. He brings together, on paper, the computer and the pencil, the rigor of code and the poetry of art.
Julien grew up in the ’90s with the demo-scene, making visuals with code. Ever since then, programming languages have been his creative tools.
