Darren White

Born and raised in a small coastal town in New Zealand, Darren has a very strong connection to the sea and has found this feeling remains when travelling around the globe. Moving to the Sunshine Coast to attend university in Brisbane, the influence of architecture on the coastline has become a focal point within his work.

Darren paints primarily with acrylic on timber. The work he produces, although lined with a deeper feeling of loss, always aim to lighten the mood or space for the observer.

Always fascinated with imagery, Darren has spent his life drawing, photographing and painting. Deeply interested in creative thinking and its ability to solve problems, Darren furthered his education by completing a Bachelor of Industrial Design.

After over five years working in design, Darren wound down his career to dedicate more time to pursuing art.
