Painting, Booth 925

  Since my early childhood, I was always interested in art, pencil drawing, water coloring, it was until secondary school that I have discovered my second passion this time, it was mathematics. I found it very logical, interesting and beautiful. By then I had 2 passions to follow in life math, art, both or one of them, I made that decision in university, I studied mathematics and pursued a PhD in it, while art increasingly became absent from my practice life but not from my mind, while studying mathematics, I have always noticed the intrinsic artful beauty in it, and had in my mind that one day, I go back to art and reveal that beauty to the world. After finishing my PhD in mathematics, I immediately went back to painting, this time I have been away from the art world for long, I had no idea where to resume. I experimented in landscape again, tried abstract art, however soon after, I realised that was just a warm up return, then I started exploring geometric art, I worked with it and did few exhibits, got few reviews about it, I was still not convinced that I have shown the beauty of math and art, till I started digging in my mathematical background and try to come up with a new style unique to my both passions, math and art. It didn’t take long till I thought of the idea of portraying mathematical proofs, theorems, .., in an artful manner that will appeal mathematically and artfully to everyone Exposing the intrinsic artful beauty between math and art is my current focus, I intend to explore it from a historical perspective, and from the richness of various domains in mathematics.
