Beautiful Fractals is my outlet for my artistic endeavours in the fractal space.

Several different resolutions are available so it should be possible to find one that fits your device.

What’s a fractal?

In colloquial usage, a fractal is “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be subdivided in parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole”. The term was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning “broken” or “fractured”.
