Hey, I'm Paul Salomon. I'm a math nerd.teacher.artist born and raised in Saint Louis.
My earliest love of mathematics came when I realized its utility in creating beautiful things. As a third grader (and ever since), I spent countless afternoons drawing stars and patterned shapes with a protractor or compass. In my work as a teacher I get to share that beauty in creation with my students. In my art I sometimes try to illuminate the complex structure and interconnectedness of simple, patterned objects. I'm compelled to understand complete spaces of related works and how my choices as an artist locate me within that space.
I write a math/ed/art blog called Lost in Recursion, with an art section to serve as my online gallery. I'm a little slow to update that though, and the best way to follow my art is on Instagram. I also coauthor Math Munch, a weekly digest of the mathematical internet (for kids and adults alike).
