If you’re anything like me, you had no idea what a Fibonacci spiral is until you opened this article. Well, at their core essence, they’re basically snail art.

The weird name comes from a dude named Fibonacci, who seemed smart and “invented” something the West called a Fibonacci sequence.

That’s where a number goes, 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144.

You get the idea.

Just kidding. That’s a series of numbers where each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. Well, if you take this idea and extend it to shapes, and especially boxes, you can get what’s called a Fibonacci spiral.

According to Wikipedia, “a Fibonacci spiral starts with a rectangle partitioned into 2 squares. In each step, a square the length of the rectangle’s longest side is added to the rectangle. Since the ratio between consecutive Fibonacci numbers approaches the golden ratio as the Fibonacci numbers approach infinity, so too does this spiral get more similar to the previous approximation the more squares are added.”

I’ll pretend we can all understand that. I certainly can’t. All I know is they look real purdy. So, I sat down for a while today and fiddled with Midjourney and the top 10 art styles to see how it would create a Fibonacci spiral out of each of them.

And if you know art (I don’t), the top 10 styles are according to a Canva article. In case of disagreement, point your anger there. Let’s jump in.

This is kind of neat. Looks like an X-ray of a snail. Also, are those cobwebs on the outer left? I say yes.

2. Post-Impressionism
