There’s an intriguing amount of variation to be seen among the works in Darren’s art portfolio. The artist’s abstract gallery is packed with experimental works featuring wild colour palettes and a variety of different textures and materials. Some of these works seem inspired directly by Darren’s artistic mentor, Dano Lopez, while others reflect on classic artistic techniques and colour theory.

Darren demonstrates an eye for detail and a talent for translating images into drawings in his fan art gallery. Drawing inspiration from a range of different properties, it’s fun to see the artist’s talent combine here with an exuberant appreciation for his subject matter.
