His works of art are nothing but hundreds of lines of codes written so intricately that the results of those codes are simply amazing. It opens a whole new dimension of imagination and inspires many to fall in love with design. I couldn’t stop but dig deeper into his world of mathematical wonders to understand the true nature of his design.

Ace sculptor, George Hart shows us “Yes, We Can”.
