# Video by Maurits Srl on tessellations & symmetry groups

Maurits Srl created a video to explain the technical side of the seventeen symmetry groups. Three of my tessellations appear in there, dealing with three of these symmetry systems. Not my best work, but enjoy!

# Tessellation Artists around the Globe

### Artists

Updated 2023-01-20:

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 art form.

# KaleidoPaint is now on Android!

The Android version of KaleidoPaint is finally finished and publicly available. I would like to share this spectacular and free app with the group Broug Atelier for Islamic Geometric Design.

# Which symmetry group to use?

Deciding which symmetry group to use for a specific design can be hit and miss. And try again. You can narrow it down Continue reading

# Symmetry Group Pm – alternating parallel mirrors

This symmetry group is the last one for me to tackle. It has been a year since I started tessellating again, since I found the KaleidoPaint iPad app. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P6m — Perfect Snowflakes

It’s been a year last week, since I started drawing with the KaleidoPaint iPad app. I was avoiding this P6m symmetry group because of the tight space for drawing within and the abundance of mirrors. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group Pg — For all Soccer Fans

This symmetry group uses two parallel glide reflections. The glides can be either vertical or horizontal. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P2

There are only 17 methods to divide the two dimensional surface into true tessellations. These 17 rules were derived from the observation and study of crystallography, a long time ago.   Continue reading

# KaleidoPaint tricks I’ve learned

I am assuming you have read all of the help files within the KaleidoPaint iPad App. It’s not very complicated. Go read it. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P6

This tessellation is laid out around a matrix of hexagons, a honeycomb. There is one 6 point rotation, one 3 point rotation and one 2 point rotation. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P1

Most simple of all symmetry systems. A translation of your design both vertically and horizontally. That’s it! Continue reading
