Darren Terpstra is an artist/designer whose work comprises painting (mixed media and collage), graphic art, 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."
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
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.
Darren has enjoyed creating visually accurate and supportive themed environments for organizations such as the University of Minnesota, Camp Snoopy, The Minnesota Orchestra, The Mall of America, VEE Corporation, and more. This has allowed him the opportunity to work in three dimensions, where imagery and environment blend to affect viewers perceptions and ideas of the content around them.
It's quite amazing how well paint and photography come together to create beautiful imagery. Darren uses the many images he's captured through the shutter lens as layers of visual content in the mixed media paintings he creates.
