Darren John is a dedicated skateboarder, painter of vibrant geometric artwork and lead curator at East London’s Proof Gallery, an artist run gallery founded by The Graffiti Life Company.
Using primary colours, his paintings are joyful expressions that take the viewer into a world of early computerised graphics. These bold, visceral paintings explore and celebrate his untamed creative spirit.
Darren John has had solo exhibitions at Proof Gallery, London; Upstairs Gallery,
Stoke-on-Trent; Boxpark, London; as well as the Moniker Art Fair (2016) and Clerkenwell Design Week (2017).
