Darren James MacPherson

University of the Arts London (MA Painting , 2019)

Darren MacPherson’s paintings make use of strong and bold colour, shape and mood. Working with acrylic and spray paint gives MacPherson’s art the sense of immediacy and impact that comes with graffiti. His paintings are a postmodern mash-up of street art, cartoons, and the inversion of iconic cultural branding.

His work recalls personal territories that range from his city environment to his family history. Indian, Japanese and urban influences are prominent, along with intricate tattoo like motifs. Loose brushwork and layering inform his constant hunt for the perfect expression of a character.
