Darren MacPherson

London-based artist Darren Macpherson is a leading name in contemporary figurative and abstract art. Combining acrylics, oils and spray paint, the versatility of Darren’s style is only surpassed by the range of artistic influences that inform his art. Elements of Pop Art, Japanese street art, cartoons, Indian art and Abstract Expressionism all work to enhance Darren’s vivacious and bold style. Birds, femme fatales, punks and devils are recurring characters in Darren’s paintings. Darren is particularly drawn to depicting women, whether in a portrait or a figurative work, due to the sense of strength he sees in the female form.

Darren Macpherson’s Career

Darren graduated with an MA in Painting from the University of the Arts, London before making his way to the forefront of the contemporary figurative and abstract art scene. The expressive nature of Darren’s art has been picked up on by Time Out, who praised his “boisterous and colourful acrylic and spray paint work”, whilst Saatchi Art awarded him the prize of Artist of the Day and Degree Art included him in their Ten Artists To Watch.

Inspiration and Medium

For Darren, inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere. Be it nature, architecture or Italian Renaissance painting, these endless influences make up the exciting chaos that bursts out of Darren’s canvases. Acrylic paint has always been at the heart of Darren’s paintings as it allows him to go in any direction he wishes. The saturated tones and thick texture of acrylic is what gives Darren’s work an unparalleled sense of expressive energy.
