Andrey Saharov

Andrey Saharov

Born: 1979

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Moscow

I'm an artist and mathematician from Moscow - the city with one of the world's most prominent math schools. I've always been fascinated by fractals and other patterns occurring in dynamical systems. That turned out to be directly related to classical string art. It takes some research and calculus to pass from symmetric circular patterns to arbitrary photorealistic images inside a circle, but the result turns miraculous.... Since few years ago I'm doing string art the new way, making nails-and-string artworks without nails inside the workspace. By now, I have vastly improved the initial algorithmic technique and elaborated my own style, which is reflected both in the deeply symbolic choice of subjects for the works, and in the filigree and amazing accuracy of the art pieces.

Andrey Saharov In The Studio

"My creative process involves wrapping several kilometers of a continuous mono-thread around an evenly spaced circle of up to 300 aluminum pins. The thread cross, re-cross, and crisscross a circular area above the flat wooden board. The image within the circle is achieved by the painstaking and complex choice of thousands of connections between the pins."

More About Andrey Saharov

IconInspires

What inspires you?

In my world, math and arts are symbiotic partners of each other. Both are constantly evolving languages for describing universal laws of nature, expanding our perception of the world and the search for its revelations. For me math is a way of verbalizing meditative experience of art, and art is the beneficiary of the math language.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

My creative process involves wrapping several kilometers of a continuous mono-thread around an evenly spaced circle of up to 300 aluminum pins. The thread cross, re-cross, and crisscross a circular area above the flat wooden board. The image within the circle is achieved by the painstaking and complex choice of thousands of connections between the pins. After the first 30 connections that make up the image, the number of possible knitting variants exceeds the number of atoms in the Universe! So it’s simply impossible to reproduce this artwork by guesswork or to untangle it with your mind

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

I’m listening to myself, and catching that very creativity moment, just like catching a wave in surfing. I’m scouring through my mind and soul in search of the subjects that can be enhanced through the use of my original technique. It carries a certain symbolism, and I always search for subjects in which this symbolism will unfold.
