Statement

Darren MacPherson is a contemporary figurative artist who uses bright, clashing colours to jar or startle the viewer. He paints with a confident and defined stroke, and his works are incredibly vibrant.

Time Out London mentioned the buzz around his "boisterous and colourful acrylic and spray paint work" which 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.
