Philippe Chevalier (whose artist name is Philoxerax) is a French digital artist. He was born in Paris in 1965 and now resides in Bordeaux, France. He started painting in 1990, when he graduated from the prestigious Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, France. (ENSAD).

As early as 1995, Philippe had a growing interest in using computers as creative tools. Back then, computers that could display 256 colors cost a fortune, so Philippe worked nights at Apple France and used their hardware to create his first digital works. Meanwhile, he also created frescoes all over the world to earn a living.

Philippe’s passion of computers continued to grow and in 1998, he learned to program. For twenty years, he created video games, websites and online applications. Today, Philippe returns to where he left off 20 years ago. Combining his skills as a programmer and an artist, he has given up brushes, pencils, pastels, but also the shapes and lights captured by a camera or an artistic gesture. The materials for his new works are mathematical formulas and dimensionless geometric objects called fractals.

Using fractals, this 100% digital material, Philippe creates images that have no size. Despite their complexity and the richness of their colored textures, the compositions are displayed at any scale without alteration.
