"Complex functions are important in many areas of mathematics, physics and engineering. A complex function is one in which both variables are complex numbers. The picture shows the visualization of a complex function using a specifically designed color scheme.
Following a technique called 'domain coloring,' the color scheme assigns a certain color to every complex number, inducing a coloring of the function domain according to its values at every point. So using this picture, you can explore properties of the function by easily spotting zeroes (black spots) or singularities (white spots). Contour lines indicate how the function deforms the complex plan."

"I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, but my family immigrated to New York when I was just a baby. Nonetheless, I speak fluent Russian and inherited all the sense of wonder at living in a country with so much abundance and so many possibilities. Growing up in New York was a never-ending sea of color and sound. The sheer diversity of the city’s inhabitants, architecture, and technology was the kind of sensory overload that provided constant inspiration for me."
"I try to express something from my inner mind. I like to see what’s really going on in my head, and then find something from the stream of consciousness and paint it. Sometimes it comes out very weird and twisted, but I like to paint exactly what I see with no compromises. That way I can explore my feelings and find something that I really want to paint."
