Harold Granucci

At the Outsider Art Fair earlier this month the company Art Sales and Research Inc presented the work of self taught artist Harold Granucci. After retiring from accounting and retail in 1979, Granucci became interested in the mathematical formulas he found in natural phenomena. He spent twenty years hand drawing elaborate patterns generated from his calculations.

Using his Texas Instruments calculator and his knowledge golden proportions, Granucci created a large body of work that has just recently become available to the public. I am always excited to see work of previously unknown math artists fr the first tim.
