Darrell Black's art practice has always been a journey of self-discovery. His images began with simple patterns and colors, resulting in more complex and recognizable objects and figures. Later he began stripping away & simplifying his creations to  vary basic elements.

Black exhibits internationally and has artworks permanently displayed in a number of art galleries, museums and other institutions in America and Germany.
