Hello! I’m a multi-talented artist and sign all of my works with my pen name: ILIA. The works on display here are Dreamscapes. I create the foundation as fractals* using a layering technique. Each piece can have up to 25 different fractals or parts of fractals. Once I have the basic design, then I use graphic programs to combine, subtract, add and adjust until I get the dreamscape as I want it. The final touches to the dreamscape are the colors, shading and highlighting to get the image to take on 3-dimensional properties.
*Fractal – a fractal is a self-similar shape that, when you look at a small part of it, has a similar (but not necessarily identical) appearance to the full shape. The shapes are found in nature as well as in mathematical equations. Computer generated fractals are mathematical equations.
