Here are some of his process images from his Behance page:
As a basis to try and recreate something “similar” I needed to draw a toroid so started playing a little with p5js and got this:
Source code version here , here and here. What I’m doing is following the equation of a toroid in polar angles theta and phi. I choose the angles by doing arithmetic mod two prime numbers so that they don’t fall into a cycle (constants n1 and n2) and I change the color every 30 points by using a scale of colors found in https://colors.co. In the last iteration I’m combining two toroids but with an offset phi angle and each uses a different palette.
Ideas to explore 💡
I will probably follow up from stuff inspired by this Pinterest board I keep with Graphic and Geometric designs I love.

The source code for both images is suuper simple. The first on is:
The second one is just as simple but you need to change
let p = x^y with
let p = x|y and the palette I used has basically these 3 colors: #f8f9fa, #6c757d and #212529 wich are 3 shades of gray.
Another example for the BBC Micro that blew my mind is this baby:
Source code is suuuper simple:
10 MODE 0 20 VDU 5 30 FOR x=0 TO 1279 STEP 2 40 t=x/1279 50 f=t*40 60 f=f-INTf 70 IF f>t MOVE x,0:DRAW x,1023 80 NEXT 90 GCOL 3,1 100 r=300 110 FOR y=0 TO r STEP 4 120 w=SQR(r*r-y*y) 130 MOVE 640-w,512+y 140 DRAW 640+w,512+y 150 MOVE 640-w,512-y-4 160 DRAW 640+w,512-y-4 170 NEXT 180 REPEAT UNTIL FALSE

Color for Generative Art
For generative art color is very important. For my latest experiments I used these palettes:
The values for those colors are in this Gist.
Related to colors I found these two interesting articles:
- 3 Levels of Generative Colors - This article lists 3 generative approaches to color and is a personal account of this author.
- Palettes - 1999 - Great article by Inigo Quilez. He has two shaders 3hat use the technique described in the article:
