Hidden Fractalist Vol. XXVIII.

Sun Sep 16, 2018, 9:00 AM

vis-a-vis by waste-and-tragedy
Hello everybody and welcome to my project called Hidden Fractalist! Goal of this project is to discover new, rising fractal artists in the depths of the fractal art community and bring them into the spotlight between other fellow artists and show them some love, help, support and friendship. My guest for today is waste-and-tragedy! Fred has been member of the DeviantArt for 7 years and if you haven't checked out his gallery yet, you definitely owe to yourself, it holds variety of different fractals, made with various programs! Let's proceed with the interview!

Hello and welcome to the Hidden Fractalist interview waste-and-tragedy! Could you please kindly introduce yourself to us?

Hello, my name is Fred and I am 50 years old. I live in a small town in the province of Saskatchewan in western Canada. In case you may be wondering, my DA name "waste-and-tragedy" is a literary reference from one of my favorite books by Clive Barker.

Hilbert by waste-and-tragedy

How did you discover Fractal Art and why did you decide to make it? Can you tell us about your first steps?

I discovered the world of fractals about twenty five years ago strictly by chance. I was immediately intrigued by the complexity of the Mandelbrot set but I had no idea that I could use computer software to generate this wonderful imagery. Then several years later, when I had been a member of DA for a couple of years (as a traditional artist) I found that many people were making images using several different pieces of free software, and I thought that if they can do it so can I! My first attempts were done using Apophysis and after that I moved on to Mandelbulb3D which got me instantly hooked. It took at least a year but I eventually opened this account and started posting images.

Likeness by waste-and-tragedy

What medium(s) do you work with? Are you experienced with any other software?

:iconwaste-and-tragedy:Lately, I only work with UltraFractal because my computer is not very powerful and I have to keep calculations simple. However, I have used many others including Mandelbulb3D, Mandelbulber, Fragmentarium, Chaoscope, Fractal Forge and a few others.

Not All I See... by waste-and-tragedy

Do you make your art professionally, or rather just as a hobby?

:iconwaste-and-tragedy:It is just a hobby. I have never considered myself an artist - just a guy who likes to be creative and loves computers. 

pattern behavior 4.3 by waste-and-tragedy

Do you have any inspiration here on DevaintArt? Do you have any favourite artists you'd like to mention?

I am inspired by a lot of fractal artists I see here on DA, in fact there are just too many to mention. 

Do you think you become more skilled and experienced with every new piece?

Yes, but there is so much more for me to learn. I compare my art to jazz music where improvisation plays a big part and no piece is ever really "finished".

Hybrid Nostalgia II by waste-and-tragedy

Could you share the process of making any of your fractal pieces?

That is a difficult one to answer. Typically, I will load parameters of something I have previously done and try to make something new from it by changing variables a little at a time. I also like to experiment with manipulation by exporting images into GIMP.

Surf Rotation by waste-and-tragedy

Is there any goal you’d like to reach both with fractals and your artistic journey on DeviantArt?

Eventually, I want to upgrade my hardware so that I can create animations and large scale static images to be made into prints. Also, I want to continue learning to improve my skills in terms of art so that maybe one day I can comfortably call myself an artist.

Bluism I by waste-and-tragedy

What was your reaction when you have gotten your first Daily Deviation feature?

I was extremely happy with my first DD. I honestly didn't think I deserved it at the time.

Impression by ~mandelbrat Suggester writes "A love-at-first-sight, fractal I couldn't help but suggest as soon as I saw it! With its vivid mercury blue tones soaked in reddish melting lava, this M3D work redefines the very concept of hot and cold in a furnace of beauty." ( Suggested by heavenriver and Featured bySuicideBySafetyPin )

If you could describe fractal art with one word, what would it be?

:iconwaste-and-tragedy:: Infinite.

Thank you waste-and-tragedy  for the interview! Have you come across a talented, but unknown fractal artist? Feel free to suggest them to me via note, I'll be more than happy to interview them!

Thank you very much for your support, and for reading this interview as well! Check the previous issue of my "Hidden Fractalist" Project here: Hidden Fractalist Vol. XXVII. - RationalParadox, or the rest of the series below!

See you in the next issue!

Check out Devious Renders by C-91, where she does a little feature of selected Fractal Art DDs from the last 2 weeks!


So who is Lukas? :? Lukas is just a regular 18 years old fractal artist from Czech republic.

Currently I'm in a 4th year of medical highschool with specialisation of Medical lyceum, which means I'll be taking finals soon. :) There's not much to do in my free time, since I'm trying to get the best results and get well prepared for the entrance exams at my (hopefully) future medical faculty. But when there IS a free time, I definitely love to spend quality time with my family, and make some fractals for relaxation! :D :)

Aspiring to become a cardiac surgeon one day! :)
