20 Stunning Examples of Fractal Art

Fractal art is a relatively new art form, having only been around since the early 1990s.

The art is created mathematically, through algorithms calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still images.

The availability of software to make the calculations has made fractal art more and more popular.

Do you think fractal art has a future? Do you think it is no more than a glorified ‘Spirograph’ and a passing fad? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.


I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).
