**Hamid Naderi Yeganeh** (Persian: حمید نادری یگانه; born July 26, 1990 in Iran^{[1]}) is an Iranian mathematical artist.^{[2]}^{[3]}^{[4]} He is known for using mathematical formulas to create drawings of real-life objects, intricate illustrations, animations, fractals and tessellations.^{[5]}^{[6]}^{[7]} His artwork *9,000 Ellipses* was used as the background cover image of *The American Mathematical Monthly - November 2017*.^{[8]}^{[9]}^{[10]}

Naderi Yeganeh has introduced two methods to draw real-life objects with mathematical formulas.^{[3]} In the first method, he creates tens of thousands of computer-generated mathematical figures to find a few interesting shapes accidentally.^{[12]} For example, by using this method, he found some shapes that resemble birds, fishes and sailing boats.^{[13]}^{[14]}^{[15]} In the second method, he draws a real life object with a step-by-step process. In each step, he tries to find out which mathematical formulas will produce the drawing.^{[5]}^{[3]} For example, by using this method, he drew birds in flight, butterflies, human faces and plants using trigonometric functions.^{[16]}^{[17]}^{[18]}^{[5]}

He has designed some fractals and tessellations inspired by the continents.^{[19]}^{[20]} For example, in 2015, he described the fractal Africa with an Africa-like octagon and its lateral inversion.^{[13]}^{[21]}

Naderi Yeganeh received his bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Qom.^{[22]} He won a gold medal at the 38th Iranian Mathematical Society’s Mathematics Competition in May 2014 and a silver medal at the 39th IMS’s Mathematics Competition in May 2015.^{[23]}^{[24]}^{[25]}
