Darrell George is a native to Long Branch, NJ and was living in and out of New Jersey since 1998 when he graduated from the University of Delaware. As an art student and a football player on an athletic scholarship, Darrell was hardly stereotypical; he would eventually change his major to keep his scholarship, but was confident that he would continue to paint on his own.
As Darrell’s athletic career ended he was anxious to continue his life as a painter. Though he did not really have the opportunity to sincerely explore his interest or capabilities as a painter until 23 years old there was immediate satisfaction being surrounded by art while working as an assistant to James Yarosh of James Yarosh associates Fine Art Gallery in New Jersey. Attracted to the Russian style of non conformist artwork in the gallery Darrell enrolled at the Bridgeview School of Fine arts in New York. Darrell credits his growth as a painter to his academic study with Russian artist Anna Rochegova. From Anna, Darrell learned many of the techniques, philosophies, and rigorous training habits of the Surikov Institute in Moscow, but credits his travels and time in athletics as the inspiration to his subject matter and palette.
Recently Darrell had the honor of adding to the collections of Mr. Bill Levine, former United States art representative to Salvador Dali’, and actress Juliette Lewis and her family. Darrell’s paintings “pointing at” and “Where have all the flowers gone” now hang among Mr. Levine’s collection of works by Dali’.
Vachegan Narazyan from the sect of Russian non-conformist art, the abstract work of Richard Diebenkorn, paint application of Wayne Thiebaud, and the allegorical scenes of Francis Bacon come together to place influence on Darrell’s artwork.
