DONN DELSON

Donn Delson, a seasoned entrepreneur turned visionary artist, has carved a remarkable path through the realms of business and artistry. With a history of founding, building, and successfully selling numerous businesses, including the world's fourth-largest entertainment merchandising company representing top music acts, Delson's entrepreneurial spirit has been the driving force behind his multifaceted career.


 

In 2011, a pivotal shift occurred as Donn directed his creative energies towards capturing the world from an unparalleled perspective. Specializing in large-scale aerial images shot from "doors off" helicopters at heights up to 12,000 feet—over two miles above the earth—his artistry reached new heights, quite literally. The immersive experience of viewing the world from such vantage points became the hallmark of Delson's artistic expression.


Delson's fine art limited edition works have graced major international art shows and fairs, earning him recognition and a dedicated following. Represented by exceptional galleries, his large-scale creations find homes among a diverse and loyal base of private and corporate collectors worldwide.


His artistic philosophy is encapsulated in his own words: "I present my work on a large scale in order to allow the viewer to immerse themselves in the experience and share the feeling of being up there with me, unencumbered, looking out onto the magnificence of our world." Through his extensive travels across the globe, from Japan to The Netherlands, England to Israel, and throughout the United States, Delson discovered captivating colors, patterns, and symmetry that, when viewed from above, transcend their land-based reality, offering an abstract beauty.


“Perspective is important to me. My high-altitude photography has taught me a great deal about making snap assessments. Things aren’t always what they appear to be at first glance.”

Donn Delson's art has found prestigious platforms at Context Miami, Art Aspen, Art Market San Francisco, LA Art Show, Affordable Art Fair New York, Hong Kong, and London. In 2024, Delson's work is also being featured at MIA Milan Photo Fair 4/24 and Photo Independent London 5/24, with a solo show at Axiom Contemporary in Phoenix scheduled for 12/24. Previous solo shows include Axiom Contemporary Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, and Victory Contemporary in Santa Fe, NM, have showcased the depth and breadth of his artistic vision.


Notably, his photographic oeuvre has garnered attention in prominent publications such as the L.A. Times, LA Weekly, Crave Online, The Jewish Journal, Silvershotz Photography Magazine, Fabrik Magazine, the Huffington Post, and BuzzFeed, solidifying Donn Delson's place as an influential artist capturing the world from a truly unique perspective.
