Primož Jakopin is coming from a literary and linguistic family but though he lacks drawing talent, fine art has always been his great passion. He became interested in computer programming around 1970 because using it he could make lace-like patterns from trigonometric and especially cyclometric functions. Computer he was using, an IBM 1130, did not have a screen so he could only see the pictures his program produced when printed on an endless paper of a line printer, as patterns of characters in white space, mainly asterisks. In 1971 this work helped him land his first job, in the Computing Center of the Institute for Mathematics, Physics and Mechanics.
           Later, again in the early seventies, he generated random images from short lines, inspired by works of Piet Mondriaan. He also admired the works of Georges Seurat.
           After the millenial change and with notable increase in color and computational capabilities of personal computers he spent some time exploring the fractal compositions. In 2013, with the advent of HTML 5 and its canvas tool, he began to experiment with program generated images again.
           From 2015 vector graphics is his main topic.
