CHAOTICA – Fractal Art by Don Bristow
CHAOTICA is a high-tech choice for modern, contemporary wall decor for home or office. Finished pieces by photographer / fractal artist Don Bristow are available on AluminArte™ by Image Wizards and on Acrylic by Supreme Printing. A wide selection of size, framing and mounting options is available, so call us to talk about your application.
Bristow’s exploration of mathematics for art began in 1982, almost immediately after Benoit Mandelbrot published The Fractal Geometry of Nature. Bristow’s earliest works were produced on 4″ wide thermal paper strips, and later on 24″ rolls of inkjet paper. But today he outsources image output to companies that specialize in high-end imaging on the best materials available, aluminum and acrylic.
Bristow is proud to be represented in Dallas by Executive Interiors, in East Texas by Gold Leaf Gallery and Valerosa Gallery, and in Las Vegas by Faux Artistry and Designs.
CHAOTICA has been featured on the covers of While-U-Wait Magazine in Tyler, Texas, Commercial Real Estate Network Magazine in Atlanta, Georgia, and Commercial Real Estate Network Magazine in Dallas, Texas.
Photographer/Fractal Artist Don Bristow was selected by Art Connection of East Texas to be Artist of the Month for June, 2017. Don has actively promoted East Texas artists, especially artists in his home town, Bullard. In 2016, he partnered with photographer Mike Provencher and M6 Winery to produce an exhibit entitled Bullard Artists – Portraits and Representative Works. Since then, several of those Bullard artists have been radio guests on Art Connection (Saturdays, 8AM Central, KTBB 97.5FM/AM600) and are represented by Valerosa Designs & Gallery. Don’s major contribution to East Texas artists is his donation of artconnectionetx.org, a website that promotes East Texas artists, especially members of the Art Connection of East Texas.
