Photographer / Fractal Artist
Don Bristow is a photographer and fractal artist living in Bullard, Texas, with his wife Sandy and dog Bentley.
According to Bristow, Mathematics is a rich source of beautiful images. Bristow pours over solutions to equations, and there he finds virtual landscapes, seascapes, stars, galaxies and things never seen.
Because it can stimulate minds and trigger new ideas, Bristow believes that his body of fractal art is an excellent choice for commercial interiors, especially lobbies and conference rooms. But Bristow’s work also hangs in many private homes. Exhibits have demonstrated that it appeals to young and old, and to artists as well as engineers.
While Fractal Art is still considered an experimental art form, Bristow maintains a great deal of discipline in his work, and he hopes to help lead the art form out of its infancy and into wider acceptance.
Bristow has been sponsor of the Art Connection of East Texas radio program for many years, and he has been a frequent guest of the program.
Bristow’s commercial photography work has appeared in magazines and newspapers from California to Texas, and his fine art photography work has been featured in California by Artisan Gallery, Centerline Gallery, Doiron Gallery, Gallery W and Taylor’s Nouveau Fine Art Gallery, and in Texas by Gallery Main Street and Caffe Tazza.
Bristow’s fractal art has been exhibited in Texas by the Mary Tomas Studio Gallery, Fort Worth Community Arts Center, Arlington Museum of Art, and several other venues. He is represented in Tyler, Texas, by Neita Fran Ward.
Bristow’s fractal art has been featured on the covers of While-U-Wait Magazine in Tyler, TX, and The Commercial Real Estate Network in Atlanta, GA and in Dallas, TX. In addition to these publications, articles about his work have appeared in BSCENE Magazine, Bullard Banner News and The Tyler Morning Telegraph.
Bristow has been designing and hosting websites for over 15 years. While he has clients that represent a wide variety of businesses, his specialty is websites for artists.
Bristow is the IT Director for Bethesda Health Clinic in Tyler, and he serves on the boards of Operation Go Quickly and the BBB of Greater East Texas. Bristow encourages and promotes other artists in local and international communities.
