About Fractal Art

Fractal art is a form of algorithmic art created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still digital images, animations, and media. Fractal art was developed from the mid-1980s onwards. It is a genre of computer art and digital art which are part of new media art. The mathematical beauty of fractals lies at the intersection of generative art and computer art. They combine to produce a type of abstract art.

In much of my work, I have attempted to explore the relationships between order and chaos, light and dark, shapes and patterns in the natural world.

With a passion for design styles and a fascination with fractal art, I strive to create unique and captivating images that showcase the intricate details and patterns found in nature.

Typical Mandelbrot fractal

The Julia set and Mandelbrot sets are considered icons of fractal art.

Benoit Mandelbrot (1924-2010) was a Polish-born French-American mathematician with broad interest in the practical sciences. After World War II ended, Mandelbrot studied mathematics, graduating from from Universities in Paris and the USA where he received a masters degree in aeronautics, eventually teaching economics and applied sciences at Harvard and mathematical sciences at Yale

Due to his access to IBM's computers, Mandelbrot was one of the first to use computer graphics to create and display fractal geometric images.

He showed how visual complexity can be created from simple rules and "chaotic" elements actually had a degree of order.
