About Me

My name is Charly Bourgain, I live in France and I'm an augmented reality artist. I’m also a member of the Meta Spark Partner Network, a program developed by Meta that brings together the world's best AR creators.

I started creating Instagram filters with Meta Spark Studio in October 2019. I've developed a whole aesthetic around neon lights. I called my style "chiaroscuro cyberpunk" because I like to create strong contrasts using dark backgrounds and futuristic bright lights.
