I try to live a positive and open-minded life. My goal as an artist is to bring that to life on canvas.” He’s been in a variety of shows throughout the Atlanta area, most recently, Pivotal held at Arts Clayton Gallery.
His first solo show, No Chaser was held at the South Fulton Arts Center. Darrien is also a stock broker and resides in Atlana, GA.
