Since M.C. Escher started popularizing “nested shape” tessellations, many artist have dabbled in the field. Some show a passing interest, yet still create with a very deep understanding of the rules of symmetry. Others can’t get enough and create constantly in this medium. Still other artists push the boundaries and explore off-spurs, into fractals, circle limits, non-repeating planes, animation, metamorphosis, pentagonal rules, morphing shapes, platonic solid tessellations, architecture, consumer products…
As for me, I look to achieve fluid line tessellations, with a few bent symmetry rules, and stories attached to the characters I create.
Below is a list of tessellation artists from around the globe, with a link to their web presence. It is in no specific order, other than our Master-Tessellator, MCE, at the top of the list. I will expand this list as more artists emerge and appear in my sphere. Send me a note if I’ve missed someone! All artwork is the copyright of each artist.
