Founders & History

Yannick BONTEMPS: the creative DNA of HELYS

PhD in Molecular Biology with 10 years experience in DNA manipulation (bacteria, animals, plants and humans).

At HELYS, he manages the firm’s laboratory operations. He supervises each step in the creation of our artwork: obtaining DNA profiles, printing and quality control before each work of art is shipped.


Alain SIMEON: the entrepreneurial DNA of HELYS

PhD in Biochemistry, his research work concerned formation of scar tissue. Before founding HELYS, he worked as R&D manager for a biotechnologies start-up.

At HELYS, he manages the firm’s administrative processes. He runs the communications and sales departments.

HELYS is not their first professional project. Working as researchers in the same laboratory, they pooled their knowledge to publish, in 2000, an article they had co-authored in an American dermatology journal.

During their studies, they became aware of the graphic beauty of DNA imagery. They decided to work on transforming these images into authentic works of modern art.

This is how HELYS was born, from the desire to take DNA images out of the laboratory and share the fantastic artistic possibilities they offer with a wider audience.
