The path of Arabesque

Home/Works/The path of Arabesque

This series of works finds its inspiration in the ornamental mosaics of Alhambra Palace, Granada, Spain and explores geometrical structures with easily recognisable Pythagorean-Platonic views. The geometrical structures of the ornaments are based on timeless mathematics, one of the most highly regarded disciplines in both Ancient Greece and the 8th century Middle East.
