Darren Terpstra is an artist/designer whose work comprises graphic art, painting, sculpting, photography and exhibit curation. He is a native of Minnesota where he also received his formal education in visual communication. Darren has been working professionally in the corporate and academic world of art and design for over 20 years. Says the artist, ” After many years of developing my style and voice, I finally have the ‘space’ mentally and creatively to put my visual notions, musings and ideas on canvas, to create more enduring and less ephemeral art.”
Years of art direction and creating graphic content, that’s more editorially-minded, have honed a foundation in conceptualizing and developing strong imagery and narrative in Darren’s work. His work tends toward looks that have a rich, multilayered, and textural appearance, with notions of wonder or magic. This draws the viewer in on a surface level, and invites them to spend time observing the greater depth revealed upon closer inspection.
