Darren Paul Clarke

Darren Paul Clarke is an artist living and creating in St Ives. He attended the Arts University in Bournemouth, where he gained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art.
Darren works mainly with Oil Paints, he attempts to communicate the relationship between Man and Nature…he says ‘I paint from within, the landscape inspires me and ignites my senses, the light ,the colour and the composition of what I see, feel and hear.

The history and atmosphere  of a location always influences the work I create, resulting in energetic and dramatic scenes rich in texture and colour.  The relationship between Mankind and Nature is important, how we affect the world around us and then in turn how it affects us back’.
Darren has exhibited at the Galleria in St Ives, The Stowe Gallery of Fine Art in St Ives and a number of High Street Stores around Cornwall as well numerous other locations in the last few years.

He normally exhibits annually in St Ives, at local venues as well as CornishGalleries.com.
Darren has also run art workshops for autistic and vulnerable adults since 2011 in Dorset and Cornwall.
