ART

I am interested in creating art that uses aperiodic order in a visually striking way. If you want higher-resolution downloads or prints of my art, please contact me.

THUE-MORSE 1475

2022

Joint work with Loh Jia Jun. This is generated from a "heat map" plot of the 4th Order Thue-Morse autocorrelation function, which is used to model the diffraction patterns of quasicrystals.

DOG AND BAT

2019

Another exploration of the Penrose kite-and-dart tiling. This time I decided to use bolder colours, and collaborate with another artist for the tile design. The sketches for the design of the dog and bat tiles were by Nadya Choy.

FISHERMAN AND TURTLE

2019

This work was generated from a Penrose kite-and-dart tiling. Fisherman and Turtle maintains the three-colourability of the original tiling. The choice of the tiles is inspired by iconic images of the Malaysian seaside: the village fisherman, and the turtle.

Bear and Cat

BEAR AND CAT

2019

This is an M.C. Escher-inspired work using the kite-and-dart Penrose tiling.  I followed Escher's rule, in that neighbouring tiles are not allowed to share a colour scheme. Note that although the kite-and-dart tiling is 3-colourable (that is, it only requires three colours to paint the tiling so that no two neighbouring tiles share a colour), the modifications I made to the tiling mean that it now requires four colours. This was my first attempt at using watercolour pens as a medium.

Orangutan and Banana Leaf

ORANGUTAN AND BANANA LEAF

2018

My first attempt at an Escher-style animal tiling. This one is based on the rhombus Penrose tiling. Both the orangutan and banana leaf are iconic Malaysian images. I strayed from Escher's tiling rules here. He always insists that neighboring tiles have a different colour scheme. The outline was printed on an ink printer and coloured using colour pencils.

FOUR QUASI-PERIODIC POLAR FUNCTIONS

2017

I had some fun with the polarplot function in Mathematica. These were generated from trigonometric polar functions with the argument scaled with an irrational constant. This image exists as a digital file.
