Fractal art is a fascinating genre of digital art that is made using algorithms and scripts. Freeware programs such as Apophysis allow artists to create a series of still images that form extremely detailed patterns with mind-blowing intricacies. In today’s inspiration showcase I present 30 captivating pieces of fractal art from a range of artists. See how complex mathematical calculations result in a variety of colourful outcomes that stimulate the imagination.

    • There are a ton of free tutorials for Apophysis on Deviantart. It’s fun, and the learning curve isn’t so steep as to be a pain. I’ve been working with fractals for a couple of years now and they make fantastic design elements.

  1. These are absolutely amazing! I tried Apophysis and didn’t know what I was doing! LOL Perhaps, I will give it another go!
    Thank you!

  2. These are stunning. I don’t have to worry if there is a Mac version or not because I wouldn’t want to tackle something like this. :) thanks for sharing, Chris.

  3. Always amazing. Would love to have an oversize canvas of one of these on my wall. I tried fractals for a while but to make these takes skill and patience.
