The Graphic Works of Russia's Anatoly Fomenko

June 06, 2012

Anatoly Fomenko, a Soviet and Russian mathematician born in 1945, feels the need for expressing abstract mathematical concepts through artwork. Since the mid-1970s, Fomenko has created more than 280 graphic works. Not only have his images filled pages of some of his own books on geometry, but they have also been chosen to illustrate books on other subjects by many other mathematicians. In addition, his works have found their way into the scientific and popular press and have been displayed in more than 100 exhibits in the Russia, USA, Canada, the Netherlands, India and much of Eastern Europe.
