Pre-Fractal Art

By Gerard @presurfer
Pre-Fractal Art
Benoit Mandelbrot was a Polish-born mathematician. He received a doctorate from the University of Paris and emigrated to the U.S. in 1958. He is best known for his work with fractals, geometric patterns that are repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry.
But before anybody knew Mandelbrot, artists were seeing fractals in nature and transfered the patterns in painting, design and sculpture. Fractals may have become a cliche in modern computer graphics, but they have a long and rich history in art.The Presurfer
