35 Phenomenal Fractal Art Pictures

In the realm of digital art, so many wonderful and playful genres exist that stimulate the imagination, but so few do it with the intricate style of fractal art. Fractal art is achieved through the mathematical calculations1 of fractal objects being visually displayed, with the use of self-similar transforms that are generated and manipulated with different assigned geometric properties to produce multiple variations of the shape in continually reducing patterns. Sounds extremely technical and not that artistic, true, but these equations create some of the most mesmerizing and inspiring artwork to emerge from the digital art arena. [Content Care Oct/26/2016]

In this edition of our Monday Inspiration series, we look at awe-inspiring examples of the dynamic digital art sensation that is fractal art with 50 Phenomenal Fractal Art Renders. Setting across the vast sea of cyberspace to find these works was such an amazing task as so many fantastic pieces surfaced. Here are scaled-down versions of some of the most breathtaking ones that were uncovered, though the full-sized versions (linked through the image) offer a much more spectacular view of these mathematical masterpieces.

Furnace63

The last click goes out to a spectacular example of artistic will and ingenuity as demonstrated by Ramiro Perez64 in a stunning work produced with the fractal program that he himself created. His desire to create such phenomenal work is alone inspiration enough, but throw in his incredible artwork, and he’s practically unstoppable.

    wow.
    I’ve allways been intrigued by fractals, but many of those are something else.
    When people start to make 3d renderings of fractal structures, and apply depth of field to fractal depths, we get some very interesting results.

    great stuff!
