One of the first American artists to begin working with the idea of fractal painting is New York artist Edward Berko. His work has been exhibited in Europe and the United States in both solo and group exhibitions. Painting in oil on wood, Berko's works document and then transpose the fractality of form that he observes in the world around him. As an explanation of his work, he writes: "Nature makes fractals in all its processes: the formation of a forest, the paint which peels off a wall, the cracks in the road, the clouds in the sky, the wood which ages. In man also. This is why I create the fractal-made-form in art." In 1994 he published a book of his thoughts on art and fractality in Paris called Sur Le Mur (On the Wall) with Les Editions de La Diffèrence.
