Miguel Chevalier is a french digital artist best known as one of the pioneers of digital and virtual art. Chevalier draws from the history of art, nature and artifice, flows and networks, virtual cities and ornate designs. chevalier focusses on the use of computer technology as an artistic means of expression to create generative and interactive virtual-reality installations.

Chevalier experienced the shift from analog to digital media first-hand, his artistic practice growing alongside it in a way where it was closely intertwined with new developments in the industry. He says, “In the late 1990s and in the early years of the new millennium, a new era opened with the sudden appearance of the first graphic cards capable of calculating thousands of polygons for video games, allowing an immersion in a 3D world in real time. So, I developed with the help of specialists my first generative artworks such as the digital gardens Sur-Natures”. Similarly, micro-computing, the sophistication of projectors and the recent invention of 3-D printing have enabled Chevalier to bring his visionary ideas into reality we can all experience.
