Bertrand de Becque

Holding degrees in graphic art, computer, and audio/visual technologies, Bertrand De Becque (aka B2BK) chose to specialize in the fields of special effects and computer-generated imagery. After 10 years working in the animated film industry (on productions that include, Despicable Me and The Lorax), he decided to devote himself fully to his former passions: video mapping and interactive art.

Since making this shift he independently explores new possibilities offered by the latest technologies and develops innovative approaches to narration.

His commitment to developing educational programs for visual arts, his co-founding of and participation in several creative collectives, and his contribution to important Parisian museums allows him to bring his artistic and digital research achievements to the public.
