18 Windows7 Wallpapers in Fractal Art Mode by Mandelbrat

Here are 18 Windows 7 Wallpapers in Fractal Art Mode by the artist Mandelbrat.

Fractal art is a subset of algorithmic art. To create the forms artists make fractal objects through calculations and representing the results as still images, animations, and media.

While most artists do not have a mathematical background, Fractal art is usually created indirectly with the assistance of fractal-generating software, iterating through three phases:

  • setting parameters of appropriate fractal software;
  • executing the possibly lengthy calculation;
  • evaluating the product.

Other graphic programs may be available to make additional modifications to the images produced, in a post-processing forum.


Fractals contain extremely irregular curves or shapes for which any suitably chosen part is similar in shape to a given larger or smaller part when magnified or reduced to the same size. In other words, the same image may be seen in smaller detail, or in a larger view. It is like if you took the letter A, and magnified it, and you see the letter A once again, in smaller version, and so on. (This is just a rough explanation.)

The origin of the fractal art came from a mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot. He was largely responsible for the present interest in Fractal Geometry. He showed how Fractals are commonly found in different parts of mathematics but also in nature. Artists took an interest in the recurring feature of fractal art and began recreating their own images. The Mandelbrot Set below, is the early version of fractal art. If you magnify any part of the border, you get the same Mandelbrot Set image once again.

You can access fractal art software at Math/Science/Chaos.

    These are not themes.   The images you have posted might be usable as wallpaper.  Unfortunately, what you have linked to are images that are available as prints.  Certainly the links that you gave do not have a download attached to them although I suppose one could always grab them through an image downloader.  Did you in fact get the author’s permission to represent that these images or “Themes” as you call them can be downloaded?
