Hugo Arcier is a French digital artist (actually he is an artist of “the digital age”) who uses 3D computer graphics in various ways: videos, prints and sculptures.
Devoted first to special effects for feature films, he has worked on numerous projects with prestigious directors such as Roman Polanski, Alain Resnais, Jean-Pierre Jeunet or François Ozon. This profession has allowed him to gain a deep understanding of digital tools – in particular 3D graphic images - which isessential for the birth of his projects.
He does commissioned works that uses computer graphics, like in 2012 the album cover “Cruel Summer” for Kanye West.
Along with commercial work, he develops plastic and reflective works that meticulously dissect the specificities of this new medium, 3D computer graphics.
He develops increasingly ambitious projects, initially only films and now other forms like prints and sculptures, such as the series, Dogma, Boolean Nature or Fiction 1 and 2.
His artistic works have been featured in numerous festivals (Videoformes, Némo, Darklight, Bitfilms, etc.), galleries (Magda Danysz, Artcore, ADN, Celal, etc.), art venues (New Museum NY, Le Cube, Okayama Art Center, Plateforme, etc.) and contemporary art fairs (Slick, Show off) around the world, making him a recognizable figure in the world of digital art.
