About Darren Robinson

I have been drawing and painting for almost 50 years now starting with that first box of Crayola 64 crayons I received when I was five years old. Over the years I experimented with pencils, markers, pastels, oils, acrylics, inks, and mixed media. I was and still am a HUGE fan of such Fantasy Artists as Boris Vallejo, Frank Frazetta, Larry Elmore, and Keith Parkinson, just to name a few. I often would sit and draw fantasy creatures and castles along with some surrealistic landscape visions. About 25 years ago I started learning to airbrush and added that to my repertoire. You can see the heavy airbrush influence and use throughout many of my recent realistic paintings. Recently I have experimented with Mixed Media and abstract art as a way to try and find my calling. Though VERY enjoyable, the mixed media and abstract just didn't 'feel right'.


Art Prints

In the late 80s I tried my hand at selling my art at local arts and crafts shows and started a 3 year stretch doing the Art Show Circuit. After winning a couple awards for my realistic animal portraits I took a brief hiatus and actually opened a sign painting/graphics and custom motorcycle shop. That was successful for about a decade during which time I produced award winning motorcycle paint jobs as well as being contracted to paint several Monster Trucks that have been seen on TV. After a rough divorce back in the early 2000s I closed that shop and returned to the working world at a 'regular job' while in my spare time started dabbling in some fine art painting on canvas again. In late 2011 I decide to get serious and started showing and promoting my work online in November of 2012. Since then I have sold prints to collectors from several states as well Canada, Germany, and France, and have sold originals to both private and corporate collectors in several states here in the USA. In 2014 I received a First Place Award for Celebrity Portraits for my rendition of B.B.King titled 'Lucille' from American Art Awards.

My artwork and painting inspiration comes primarily from how I perceive nature and all of the beautiful creations in it. I have always imagined the beauty around us with a sort of magical touch added. I have finally realized that my true passion lies with Fantasy Art and I have started the journey towards creating my favorite genre of art. Watch for my new style developing and revealing itself on another site here on FAA dedicated to just my Fantasy Art. I hope to start doing Fine Art Shows by 2016 and should have hope to have gallery representation by then. Thanks for stopping by and if you enjoy viewing my art HALF as much as I enjoy creating it well then that means I am halfway there.
