What does art and math have in common? It depends on who you ask but if you’re speaking to artist Yasuo Nomura, it’s more than you think. Following in the footsteps of luminaries like Leonardo da Vinci, Jackson Pollock and Katsushika Hokusai, the contemporary Tokyo-based painter uses sequences, patterns and shapes derived from mathematical concepts like the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio.
With theoretical physics and modern mathematics in his hand, Nomura creates semi-abstracted landscapes of mountains, oceans and skies. He reconstructs the beauty of nature through numbers.
