Twelve artworks by Darrell Urban Black • Empty Mirror

Born March 25, 1964 in Brooklyn, New York, I am Darrell Urban Black, an American visual artist presently living in Frankfurt, Germany. I work in a variety of formats that include pen and ink drawings, acrylic paintings on canvas wood, and mixed-media objects. My creative process is a mixture of works on paper, acrylic paint, found objects and non-toxic hot glue. My technique creates a three-dimensional effect on any surface that gives a sense of realism and presence in my artwork. I refer to this optical artistic illusion as ”Definism.” Definism portrays various differences in human nature, from life’s everyday dramas to humankind’s quest to understanding self.
