Mandelbrot Fractals

My name is Koenraad Koster and I am visual artist and I make unique Mandelbrot fractals on the computer and tablet. Do you have questions, comments, compliments or a request for an exhibition? Please contact me using the contact form.

A fractal, sometimes also called fractal, is a geometric figure that is self-similar, that is, made up of parts that are more or less similar in shape to the figure itself. Fractals have an infinite amount of detail, and some fractals have motifs that repeat on smaller and smaller scales. Usually fractals can be generated by repeatedly applying a certain operation. The term fractal was introduced in 1975 by Benoît Mandelbrot and is derived from the Latin fractus (broken).

Mathematical objects with fractal properties were discovered in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by mathematicians such as Karl Weierstrass, Helge von Koch, Georg Cantor, Henri Poincaré, and Gaston Julia. Fractal geometry is the branch of mathematics that deals with the properties of fractals. It complements classical geometry, with applications in science, technology and computer art.

The most famous fractals are the Mandelbrot set and the Julia set.
