Numbers as Art (pArt 4) / Ilia Bouslakov (Russia)

Today we are in search of beauty in numbers.

Of course, the beauty is difficult to define, but I think that in simple terms, this is what makes you want to look at it over and over again (and not through as we usually do while looking at numbers) – symmetry or asymmetry, shapes, colors, etc., or even the idea behind it.

Below some beauty in numbers as I see it (paper 42×30 cm, acrylic).
