Having taken a break from exhibiting, London based artist Darren John is back with a brand new presentation and his debut show in Portugal with Stacks at Circus Network Gallery Porto.
Darren is best known for his colourful, bold and creative approaches to image making. On show at Circus are the first paintings from Darren’s STACKS/Flags of Us series.
"... But these are black and white?!” we’ll hear you say. Well in the first UK Lockdown in 2020, with limited access to his studio, Darren was stuck housebound with only a few art materials and the items around the home to work with.
It was here that Creativity Under Quarantine was born. A 26 part creative painting and video series which quickly became a hugely successful resource in schools, higher education and people from all walks of life and creative ability. The series shared that if we view what surrounds us through a more playful lens, we can engage with our worlds in totally new and exciting ways.
